Q: Is it true that my mother’s estate, which was rather modest, will not require a full probate because of its relatively small value?

A: That’s right! California law allows for a simpler process to transfer personal property for estates that fall under a certain value threshold (currently $184,500), making it quicker and easier for heirs to receive their inheritance, and without having to go through probate.
