CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 1960


Introduced by Assembly Member Obernolte

An act to add Section 51 to the Probate Code, relating to estates and trusts.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1960, as introduced, Obernolte. Estates and trusts: kindred: definition.
Existing law uses the term “kindred” in various provisions of the Probate Code, including a provision that specifies that if a transferee is dead when a testamentary instrument is executed, or fails or is treated as failing to survive the transferor or until a future time required by the instrument, the issue of the deceased transferee take in the transferee’s place, as specified, and defines transferee to mean a person who is kindred of the transferor or kindred of a surviving, deceased, or former spouse of the transferor.
This bill would define the term “kindred” for purposes of those provisions to mean a relationship by blood or adoption, and not by affinity.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

51.
 Subject to Section 6451, “kindred” means a relationship by blood or adoption, and not by affinity.
