Probate Steps

San Diego probate is the court procedure that changes the legal ownership of the decedent’s property. The purpose of probate is to make sure that, in the presence of a will, the decedent’s wishes are carried out, including appointment of the decedent’s Executor. In the case that the decedent passed away intestate (without a will), the San Diego probate court would typically appoint a family member to act as Administrator.
