About the Program

Following a spouse’s death, the surviving spouse and heirs are often left with the decedent’s debts. In some estates, it is the surviving spouse who asserts claims against his or her decedent spouse. This program will discuss how California community property law affects creditors’ claims against the decedent’s estate or trust and the surviving spouse’s and heirs’ exposure to the decedent’s debts. The program will also discuss potential community property disputes which can arise between the surviving spouse and the decedent’s spouse’s estate and practical tips to handle such disputes.
