Family sues to block grandson's inheritance

In California and around the country, inheritance disputes sometimes arise after people die. Family members may file lawsuits to prevent people from inheriting from estates if they believe that the people caused the deaths. In a case that was filed in New Hampshire, a man's aunts are suing to try to prevent him from inheriting money from his grandfather's estate because his aunts believe that he killed his grandfather and his mother so that he could inherit the money.

How to do probate right in California

After a person dies in California, it may be necessary for the will to go through probate. If that is the case, the custodian of the will has 30 days from a person's passing to present an original copy to the probate court clerk's office. The executor of the estate should also receive a copy.

Two men claim sole rights to Charles Manson's estate

News sources report that an inheritance dispute has arisen over control of the estate of cult leader Charles Manson, who died in a California prison on Nov. 19. Manson was initially sentenced to death after his followers killed several people in 1969. In 1972, he received a life sentence after the California Supreme Court struck down the death penalty. Now, two men are each claiming to hold wills naming them as the sole beneficiary of Manson's estate.
