Family members and others are interested parties in probate

During a California will contest, it is not always clear which persons qualify as interested parties. There may be a number of people who are interested parties despite not being listed in the relevant last will and testament. Generally speaking, all people who are members of the decedent's family qualify as interested parties, or they will be actual parties in a will contest. This is true whether or not they are named in the last will and testament.

Addressing spouse omissions from estate instruments

Many of the clients that have come to see us here at The Law Office of Matthew C. Yu in the past are worried due to their loved ones not having updated their wills following their divorces. If you share the same concern, it likely comes from the assumption that if your now-deceased spouse did not specifically disinherit their ex, then the ex-spouse still stands to inherit their assets. You do not need to worry about this particular issue. Once your spouse's divorce was finalized, any provisions in their will pertaining to their ex-spouse were invalidated.
