I have some specific questions relative to filing of particular forms relative to probate
in California. Original petition has been filed along with additional required forms and the will. Just had first hearing. Judge continued the case for four weeks asking for an amendment to the petition with some minor repairs made on the form. The "repairs" were simple as we had simply overlooked a couple of boxes that needed to be checked.
Questions: (1) At the top of the amendment form it asks for date of hearing. Is this asking for the original hearing date, which was July 8th, or is it asking for the continued hearing date of August 5th?
(2) Does filing of the amendment require that either, or both, the notice to family members and those named in the will, or notice published in a newspaper of general circulation, be done a second time?
Separate, but related: In the course of preparing this amendment, we noticed an error on the Judge's Orders where we inadvertently marked "full authority" when it should have been "limited authority." Since we have not yet reached this stage of the probate process, can we simply submit a replacement document or does it require and amendment as well?
