An Overview of the Schedules in Riverside Probate Accounting

Even for those with a finance background, the receipt of a Riverside probate accounting may seem confusing at first glance. The California probate rules require trustees and executors or administrators to file accountings relating to the property held by the trust or estate. As a beneficiary or heir, you are entitled to receive copies of these accountings. For assistance understanding the contents of accounting, contact a Riverside probate lawyer with experience representing heirs, beneficiaries, and fiduciaries.

When you receive an accounting, it will likely include various schedules. The following is an overview of the schedules that are included with a California probate accounting.
