I am a conservator for my brother in Idaho and my brother

Customer Question

I am a conservator for my brother in Idaho and my brother died. His property is in California (bank account) and the bank said i have to file a petition to liquidate funds in the state where the property is. I filed a petition for exparte order to liquidate funds in the Los Angeles Court and i sent them copies of my letters and order of conservatorship in both states and they denied my petition stating I don't have the authority to file petition because i was discharged from the California court when I moved to Idaho and the case was transferred to Idaho where my brother and I live.

What was the reason the LA Court discharged you? Was is only because the case was transferred to Idaho? If so, you will have to re-file a normal petition, (not ex parte) to liquidate the estate. LA Courts dislike ex parte applications and rather have time to evaluate the merits of the motion rather than 5-10 minutes on an ex parte basis.

Also, consider retaining a probate attorney for the limited purpose of filing this liquidation motion for a flat fee to get is resolved to save time, a filing fees.
