lately we’ve seen a lot of cases where
00:06
someone dies without a will or with the
00:08
will that is unclearly written or lacks
00:11
the formalities of a will in those cases
00:14
the court is left to decide who are the
00:17
beneficiaries of this estate and and the
00:20
court has to look to the probate code
00:21
but for example a child who’s left out
00:24
of a will may claim that he or she was
00:27
accidentally left out and in certain
00:28
cases the court may need to write them
00:31
back in or in other cases the will again
00:35
may lack the formalities that that a
00:37
will or trust requires in California law
00:40
so these issues arise frequently where a
00:43
will which is farm at far less formal
00:45
than a trust can have defects in it that
00:49
make it vulnerable to attack
