Probate is a legal procedure that transfers title to property when someone dies. Unless a deceased person has provided for transfer outside of probate (like a joint tenancy or a living trust), it is necessary to file a petition with the Superior Court and ask the court to decide who gets the property. If there's a Will, the Will designates a beneficiary. If there's no Will, the laws of California determine who one's heirs are. Trying to negotiate the probate courts and weaving your way through complicated forms requires a skilled and experienced probate lawyer.
