Probate is the court-supervised process that resolves a deceased person’s legal and financial affairs and transfers that person’s estate in an orderly manner after death. The deceased person’s creditors and taxes are paid, and what remains of the estate’s assets is distributed to the beneficiaries. Probate is necessary when someone who owned substantial assets dies with only a will – or without a will.

In California, you should never have to fear that an employer will violate your legal rights. Yet far too often, unscrupulous employers do violate employees’ rights.
