Detailing your rights to temporary possession

Most in San Jose likely believe that they will have years to plan for their estates. Yet what happens if your spouse dies unexpectedly while still relatively young? Even in the event that you had both planned ahead and created estate planning documents, it is likely that you still have outstanding debts that those who have pass on in their elder years might not have to deal with. You might be facing the potential of having to liquidate assets in order to settle your spouse's liabilities. Many in your same position come to use here at Temmerman, Cilley & Kohlmann, LLP wondering if that means selling their homes. 

What is a probate referee?

The estate administration process in San Jose can often become contentious. While you and all others who are party to an estate may start out with the stated intention of avoiding discord, you may be surprised at how quickly it can arise when people fear that their interests may be affected. One area that many may disagree over is in the valuation of an estate's assets. If you have been asked to serve as the executor of an estate, then you may feel overwhelmed at the prospect of trying to come up with an accurate appraisal on your own. Fortunately, you do not have to; the state will typically assign a probate referee to handle that task.
