OK, thank you! I didn't know that will's had to be filed. Unfortunately, my Father lived in three different areas, but I'm betting Palo Alto would be where a will would be filed. Can I do this via phone or online?
When I Google "Clerk of Court" I get several different department's of the county courthouse. Which one do I go with?
Shit. He and his wife bought a house in Florida where he died. I didn't know about this purchase until after his death and she would be very unlikely to provide me with any information. OK, well, I think I will let it go now! Thank you,
He was living in Florida when he died, and strangely enough, I recall her telling me that they'd changed their place of residence, but I don't know what county. They had just purchased a house when he died. She and I had a beyond difficult relationship so he just kindof stepped back. It's a bummer, five houses, etc. She's just fine and I'm a struggling single Mom (because I live in the San Francisco area - - anywhere else I'd be fine)!
Thank you for your help. You've given me more answers than I've gotten elsewhere.
I'm going to rate your service (again) as excellent even though when I tried to tip, the website got shady and made me become a member (which I am not any longer).
