Assembly Bill No. 2090

Introduced by Assembly Member Gonzalez Fletcher

February 07, 2018

An act to amend Section 17205 of the Probate Code, relating to trusts.


AB 2090, as introduced, Gonzalez Fletcher. Trusts: judicial proceedings.
Existing law authorizes a trustee or a beneficiary of a trust to petition a court to make determinations about the trust or to establish the existence of a trust. Existing law prescribes the procedure governing these proceedings, which includes requiring a petitioner to cause a copy of the petition to be delivered to a trustee or beneficiary who has filed and served a notice of appearance in connection with a particular petition, or who has requested a copy of the petition, within 5 days after service of the notice or receipt of the request, as specified.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


 Section 17205 of the Probate Code is amended to read:

 If a trustee or beneficiary has served and filed either a notice of appearance, in person or by counsel, directed to the petitioner or the petitioner’s counsel in connection with a particular petition and proceeding or a written request for a copy of the petition, and has given an address to which notice or a copy of the petition may be delivered pursuant to Section 1215, the petitioner shall cause a copy of the petition to be delivered to that person within no later than five days after service of the notice of appearance or receipt of the request.
