California Probate law requires that each time a petition is filed in the probate court pertaining to probate and trust matters, that persons who are entitled to notice receive notice by mail or by another allowable method of service. It is important to serve the notice of hearing because all interested persons are entitled to file an objection, and let the Probate Court know their view of why the petition should not be granted. But more importantly, if no notice is given, this gives rise to a later Motion to Set Aside the Order pertaining to that petition.
