Probate Documents Geo City

Full Probate

A probate must be done through the court if someone who owns real property (or real estate) passes away without a Living Trust. Even if the decedent had a Will, the Will must be submitted to probate court before the property can be inherited.

Petition to Determine Succession

A Petition to Determine Succession to Real Property is a type of simplified probate that can only be done for estates under $166,250. An assessment by the Probate Referee may be needed prior to starting this process.

Heggstad Petition

A Heggstad Petition can be done in the event someone with a Living Trust passes away without titling their real property (or real estate) into the Trust’s name.

GeoSeoTitle FAQs

What does a divorce mediator do?

A divorce mediator is neutral party trained to assist divorcing couples in settling issues related to divorce and separation.

Is a mediator an attorney?

Though a mediator can be and attorney, mediators and attorneys have different roles in divorce. An attorney represents their client’s interest and how they should present their case.

In contrast, a mediator is a neutral party who does not give legal advice nor do they represent either party or either side of a dispute, even if the mediator is an attorney.

Who pays for a divorce mediator?

Geo City Mediation fees are generally shared evenly between both parties.

How long will my divorce take?

A minimum of 6 months from when your spouse receives a court filed copy of the initial divorce documents. That said, timing depends on many factors, including if your matter is agreeable or not. Having professional help is critical as the court forms and entire process is complicated to manage.

How much does a divorce cost?

An average divorce in California costs $17,500. Hiring a legal document preparation professional, including having the option of divorce coaching and mediation, can significantly reduce that cost.

Do I have to go to divorce court?

No. If your matter is agreeable or uncontested, and have legal help, you will never see the inside of a courtroom.

Do I need an attorney to file for divorce?

No. A competent legal document assistant, with the option of coaching and mediation, is likely all you need. If legal advice becomes necessary, attorney input can be sought.

Are all legal document services and mediators the same?

No. Just like all attorneys are not the same, this goes for document assistants and mediators. It is best to hire someone you feel comfortable with and trust, so do your homework upfront and choose wisely as it can make a difference.

How is custody, visitation and child/spousal support decided?

No family situation is identical. There are a variety of aspects to be considered. The process of establishing custody, visitation, and child/spousal support can be made easier or remain difficult. If you and your spouse are not able to come to an agreement together, bringing in a coach and/or mediator to assist can prove valuable. There are many creative ways to come up with an agreement which are often unaware of by the parties and available in the legal professional’s toolbox.

Can I file my own divorce?

Technically, yes. It may not be the best idea. Many of our divorce clients need help completing the process. I applaud do-it-yourselfers, but the court forms have so many little nuances so having professional help from the get-go could prove well worth it in the end.
