Spousal Property Petition Preparation

What’s a Spousal Property Petition?

When the assets are community property to be transferred to a spouse or domestic partner, a formal probate is not required. Also a probate referee, who values the assets in most other probate court matters, will not be required. There is a mandatory hearing, at which time the process is usually finalized.

The Process – Spousal Property Petition

We prepare the documents for the court for the surviving spouse or domestic partner or their representative. Once completed and filed, the hearing is scheduled, which will take place about 30 days later. We also help with giving legal notice to all people required to receive it. Many courts allow people to attend the hearing by telephone. After the order is granted at this hearing, it is ready to be certified by the court clerk and then taken to the County Recorder for recording to transfer any real property and complete the process.
