Introduction to Probate Law in California

The main purpose of probate law in California is to make sure the deceased person’s assets get passed on to the people he or she wants to inherit them. Through this process, the court resolves the deceased person’s other unresolved financial matters. The lifecycle of an estate lasts only as long as the probate process.
