    How to find out if I am a beneficiary?

    What is the name of your state? CA

    My step-mother died a few weeks ago. Before dying she insisted that I send my overseas address to her husband (not my father). Years ago I knew that I was a beneficiary in her will but I do not know now if that is still true. Her husband told friends that he did not know how to locate me. I sent him my address but cannot know for sure that he will acknowledge it.

    Is there any way that I can find out about my step-mother's will? She died in Northridge, CA on July 11.

    Thanks, Icaru

    My sympathies on your loss. Normally the will is filed at the county courthouse probate court within 30 days after the death, but you must realize that sometimes, due to grief or the many business matters that an executor or relative must attend to, filing the will may not be a top priority and may be delayed for a short while.

    Northridge, CA is part of Los Angeles County, so you can call or write the following for more information:

    ATTENTION: Index Section/Probate Records Phone (213) 974-5175

    PROBATE DEPT. (CENTRAL DISTRICT)
