Introduction to California Probate - Part 4(a)

According to Probate Code §9650, the Personal Representative has a right to, and shall take possession or control of, all the property of a deceased person's estate. As well, the Personal Representative has a right to collect all debts that are due to the deceased person (or the deceased person's estate).

The term "Marshalling" is a technical one- it means to collect, to organize and to inventory all assets. Really this is one of the most important jobs in the Probate process.
