Hi. I’m Charles Triay. Many cases we handle involve the rights of the spouse of the deceased. The main area that comes into play is whether a particular asset is community property or separate property or partially community property or partially separate property. California is one of the few community property states in the western U.S., and so we have a unique set of laws that gives spouses community property rights. I’m Charles Triay.
