Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
First let me express my condolences on your recent loss. I am sure you are going through a tough time and I will try to help.
From a purely legal perspective, there is no statute of limitations on filing a probate case in CA. In some instances a probate case won't be filed until years after someone passes simply because there is not a good reason to do so or the children file for both parents once the surviving parent passes.
Unfortunately, I am not allowed to recommend anyone personally under my agreement with JustAnswer. However, these are a couple sites that we attorneys actually use if we need foreign counsel in a state where we aren't licensed. Further, customers have consistently reported good results with these sites:
They screen their attorneys based on geographic location, area of practice, time in practice, cost and customer reviews.
But the most important thing is to find someone who you are comfortable with and who you feel will diligently pursue the administration of the estate.
