Orange County Estate Planning Attorney Explains Lodging an Original Will

Lodging An Original Will: When and Where

Are you in possession of an original will?

If so, there are certain legal requirements I want to inform you of. You must take action and lodge the original will!

The Probate Code 8200 states you must lodge the original will with the court in the county where a loved one died within 30 days of their passing. So make sure to take action if you are in possession, then send it off to the superior court in the county where the person passed away so that it is properly lodged in the time the law allows. If you have questions we are happy to help you in any way we can. Contact us today and set up an appointment.

We offer a many different resources and pamphlets on the subject of creating, updating and implementing estate plans. We also offer a regularly scheduled seminar in our office to help people determine what the best options are for them in their estate planning needs. We hope you sign up for one of our seminars to help you find your best options. We regularly conduct free seminars designed to teach about the benefits of creating an estate plan.
