Concerning probate in state of CA ... What, if any, remedy…

Customer Question
Concerning probate in state...

Concerning probate in state of CA ... What, if any, remedy do i have if the executor of the will is not fulfilling the require duties in a timely manner ?

Lawyer's Assistant: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?

The only thing i have is a copy of the notice of petition. it was mailed to me on 4/19/17. the (DE-121) set a hearing on the petition for 7/19/17. i'm certain it's a small estate as she had been kept in assisted living for a matter of years prior to her death using much of her assetts

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

3 beneficiaries me living in MD, my brother living in AZ and the 3rd is actually the decedents grandson living in CA....... my big concern is that the executor/grandson is stalling things with intent to keep assets under his control and eventually to not have to make any distribution(s).

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
