Have you ever wished that a conservatorship action would be more efficient in California? When Santa Monica’s conservatorship cases were moved to Los Angeles Central Court in Downtown, the number of cases which were handled by the probate conservatorship judges increased by the number of cases handled by the Santa Monica probate judge. Same happened with other local probate court. That meant that six court houses consolidated their probate and conservatorship cases into one court house.
Our partner, Mina Sirkin, recently attended the View From the Bench, where the probate judges discussed the state of the conservatorship cases in Los Angeles County. As of June 2018, there are eleven probate departments handling probate, trust and conservatorships in Los Angeles County. Where does your case fall? Most of the probate departments are efficient in handling their calendars.
Soon, Department 2D will be receiving some of the probate matters, which should take some of the cases away from the other departments. As of now, here are the departments which handle probate and conservatorship: 2D, 3, 4, 5, 9,11, 29, 56, 67, 79, and others to be announced.
The court announced that within the next 18 months, it plans of making probate documents available to attorneys electronically. Currently, we can file the documents electronically, but cannot see what others filed in pdf.
What areas are affected by the changes?
Probate, Conservatorships, Trust, Guardianship and related matters.
