Was your divorce pending or complete when your wife died?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I did Bi-furcation divorce, where I first got Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage. We are about to finalize separation/division of community property when she died. I do not want to do any probate because it expensive, time consuming and we have nothing to probate than release of our individual retirement benefits.

Where is reply to my answer.
Expert:  Steven K. replied 10 months ago.
I apologize for the delay. You could use a Request for Order to ask that the pension plan be unjoined as a party given your ex-wife's demise. You would use the "Other" option instead of the custody, visitation, support or property options. However, the Court may refuse to do so because it may determine that your ex-wife's proceeds must be probated to her heirs. Does this answer your question?
