Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Dear Customer, I am very sorry to learn of the death in your family.
If you are being represented by counsel, the attorney should be guiding you through this process.
However, if you are not, the California Courts have a very good flow chart to help you (complete with all necessary forms and information - it is probably worth reviewing even if your attorney is going to file the paperwork for you).
