Probate Process In California as Example
It can be a very difficult time for surviving loved ones after someone passes away. In addition to obvious emotional issues, the logistics of handling the person’s assets and possessions can be daunting. This is precisely the reason estates enter the California probate process. In California, the role of probate is to account for and collect a deceased person’s assets and belongings into a single estate, determine the rightful heirs, and finally fairly distribute the assets to these heirs. With few exceptions, all estates in California must go through this formal court process.
Delays To Your Inheritance In California
The major problem with the California probate process is that it’s bogged down with delays at every turn. Most heirs don’t realize just how long it will be until they receive their inheritance in California. In fact, the average time it takes for heirs to receive their inheritance in the USA is a full year and a half according to a national study.
A major factor leading to inheritance delays in California is under-funding and over-crowding of the state probate courts. There are just 58 county courts to serve over 38 million people in California – just under 13% of the US population. Just getting a court date to open a probate case can take many months. Add in the delays of selling real estate, settling creditor’s claims, etc. and it can take 2 years or more for rightful heirs to see any of their inheritance in California.

Getting Your Inheritance Cash Advance
Inheritance Cash Advances Vs. Probate Loans
Our Investor offers inheritance cash advances to heirs such as yourself whose money is trapped in the lengthy probate court process. Our cash advances are not loans, providing several advantages to you. Unlike traditional lenders and banks, we never charge an interest rate, there are no monthly payments, and there’s no need to risk losing collateral assets such as your car or home. Your employment history and credit score won’t impact your eligibility either.
In order to qualify for inheritance cash advance, all we ask is that you’re an heir to an estate currently going through probate and that you will be receiving at least $50,000 when the estate closes. As long as that’s the case, we can usually send you a portion of your inheritance right away. In return, you assign a set dollar amount to our company and we wait for the probate estate to close. We even offer significant rebates if we are paid back earlier than originally planned.
Fast And Easy Cash From Probate
When applying for an inheritance cash advance, you can expect to receive funds in as little as three days. Our Investor will work closely with you and your attorney and be available by phone and email throughout the entire process.
Understanding The Probate Process
What Is Probate?
Simply put, probate is a court-supervised process that oversees the transfer of an individual’s assets (i.e. their “estate”) after death. Probate is a complex, tedious, and time-consuming process that is riddled with delays. Heirs almost always underestimate the amount of time it will take for them to receive their inheritance from an estate in probate. On top of the delays, there is often lack of clarity on how the process works.
As an heir, here are some facts that you should immediately understand regarding your role in the probate and inheritance process:
How Does The Probate Process Work?
Once again, all estates go through the probate process slightly differently. This breakdown is meant to showcase a fairly “regular” probate procedure.
The very first step in the probate process is to file the petition for probate. This petition, along with the original will and codicils (legal alterations to the will) are filed with the probate court. The Notice of Petition to Administer Estate is also filed during this stage. In this case, the “petitioner” is usually the proposed personal representative.
Once these forms have been filed, the court clerk will set a hearing for 45-60 days after the filing date. It is at this point that notice has to be given to all of the people named in the will. This is the stage at which you will first receive notice of your inheritance. The Notice of Petition to Administer Estate is also published in a local newspaper to alert the decedent’s creditors. It is during this time that they must file their claims with the court.
At the hearing, if no one has filed an objection to the probate, the court will admit the will to probate and appoint the PR. After this appointment, the court will issue Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration which are used by the PR to prove that they have the authority to act on behalf of the estate.
The second step in the probate process consists of an ongoing process of filings, notifications and applicable settlements. The following is just a short list of tasks which must be completed:
As you can tell, the probate process is indeed a long and difficult process. The good news is that the personal representative chose to retain a probate attorney to guide the estate through this complicated process. The bad news is that, even with the help of an attorney, the probate process can still take 12-18 months and in many cases even longer.
Can I Access My Money Today?
While some estates can be administered in 18 months or less, a large percentage of estates can take up to 3 years to close. This means that the estate heirs may not receive any inheritance money for up to 3 years after probate first begins.
If you would like to access your inheritance money right away, we can help you get money in as little as 3 days. We provide cash advances to heirs who have an inheritance stuck in probate. If you are interested in learning more about our cash advance please contact us.
What exactly is an Inheritance Cash Advance?
The inheritance process in the United States takes an average of 17 months to distribute funds to the rightful heirs. An inheritance cash advance allows heirs to access their inheritance immediately when the estate opens rather than waiting for it to close.
Are there any risks or fees associated with applying?
No! There is absolutely no cost or obligation associated with applying for an advance. Consult with us to discuss your inheritance, the estate, pricing, timelines, etc. all for no charge.
Who is eligible to receive a cash advance from our Asset Management/Investor/Financial Firm (“Investor”)?
Any heir inheriting at least $50,000 from a probate estate which is already open (or is in the process of being opened) is qualified for a probate advance. If you aren’t sure how much you are receiving or if you’re receiving a bit less than $50,000, feel free to still call us for a free consultation.
Does the advance affect other heirs in the estate?
No! This is understandably a common question for many of our clients. Our transactions are strictly between our Investor and the specific heir who received the advance. The estate as a whole and the other heirs’ share are never affected by our advances. When the estate is ready to distribute, if there isn’t enough for our Investor to be paid in full out of our client’s specific share, we simply take the loss.
Are there minimums and maximums for cash advanced by our Investor to an heir?
Generally, our Investor’s advances range from $50,000 to $1,000,000. As a general estimation, assume the advance cannot exceed 30% of an heir’s expected distribution from the probate estate.
How much does it cost to get an inheritance advance?
The cost involved with an advance is dependent on a number of specific factors such as the amount of time until the estate will be closed, complexity of the estate, size of the advance, etc. With every advance we offer, we guarantee you will receive the lowest price available. We also offer substantial rebates for early repayment.
What does our Investor receive in return for the inheritance cash advance?
In return for immediate cash advance from our Investor, the heir sells (i.e. “assigns”) to our Investor a fixed amount out of the heir’s eventual share of the probate estate. This fixed amount (i.e. the “assignment amount”) is clearly laid out in the contract and agreed upon before the advance is ever paid.
When does our Investor get paid?
Our Investor is paid directly from the estate upon distribution. The remainder of our client’s inheritance is distributed directly to them. In other words, our clients never directly make, nor are they personally responsible for, any payments to our Investor.
Do you offer rebates if my advance is paid back earlier than expected?
Yes! We build substantial rebates into the pricing of our inheritance advances in order to give our clients the best price possible. If we receive payment in full before the Early Pay-off Rebate (EPOR) date, we’ll send you the rebate amount within 5 business days.
Are monthly payments required to repay the advance?
No. our Investor is paid directly and in full from the probate estate at the time of distribution.
Will credit problems prevent someone from getting an heir advance?
No! A poor credit record, including delinquencies, discharges in bankruptcy, foreclosures, etc., will not prevent an heir from receiving an advance. Our Investor may still obtain a credit report in preparing a case for funding, but primarily to determine if there are judgments, child support or bankruptcy proceedings that may affect the eventual payment of the assignment.
What if there are insufficient funds in the probate estate at the time of distribution to pay our Investor?
This is one of the major risks our Investor assumes when it advances inheritance cash to an heir. If an heir gives accurate information on their application and honors the assignment agreement, they have no personal liability for payment of the advance.
What happens if a previously unknown creditor makes a claim on the probate estate?
This is another risk that our Investor takes away from the heir. If there are insufficient assets at the end of the probate to cover the amount of the assignment, our Investor simply takes the loss. The heir is not liable to pay back the assignment unless, of course, the heir was aware of the claim(s) and failed to tell our Investor about it in the application process.
What happens if the distribution of the probate estate is delayed?
Our Investor must wait until the probate estate is ready to distribute. There is no recourse to the funded heir for any delays in the distribution. The assignment does not accrue interest or become more expensive. No matter how long the distribution is delayed, our client’s flat fee will never increase! On the other hand, we offer significant discounts if we are paid back earlier than anticipated.
Are there any geographic limitations on funding?
Our Investor works with heirs to estates in every state in the US. We do not work with estates outside of the US.
What if the heir lives in a different state than where the probate estate is open?
It is common for the heirs of a probate estate to reside in a state different from where the estate is going through probate. This is not a problem at all! We routinely work with estates in counties all over the country. We also work closely with county probate courts and probate attorneys all across the United States.

New Application Of OPVs For Both Energy Harvesting And Saving - the ST-OPVs generate over 6% power conversion efficiency with a high visible light transmission of over 25% and outstanding infrared radiation rejection rate of over 80%
Semitransparent organic photovoltaics (ST-OPVs) have attracted extensive attention due to their potential for integration into the windows of buildings. Herein, we propose a dual-functional ST-OPV device that is not only highly efficient but it is also very effective for heat insulation. By introducing non-fullerene acceptor with enhanced near-infrared absorption and distributed Bragg reflectors for selectively enhancing the transmittance in visible wavelengths while keeping high reflectance for near-infrared light, the ST-OPVs generate over 6% power conversion efficiency with high visible light transmission of over 25% and outstanding infrared radiation rejection rate of over 80%. Our results show that with proper design of ST-OPVs, they can be used not only for generating power from sunlight but it is also for solar shading and heat insulation, which opens up a new application of OPVs for both energy harvesting and saving.
A new dual threat window could double the energy efficiency of average households.
Researchers from the South China University of Technology have developed a window that blocks unneeded parts of sunlight to keep heating and cooling costs low, while also serving as a miniature electricity generator.
“Building-integrated photovoltaics are a great example of a market where silicon photovoltaics, despite their cheapness and performance, are not the most appropriate due to their dull appearance and heaviness,” Hin-Lap Yip, senior author and professor of materials science and engineering at the South China University of Technology, said. “Instead, we can make organic photovoltaics into semi-transparent, lightweight and colorful films that are perfect for turning windows into electricity generators and heat insulators.”
The researchers performed a three-way balancing act between harvesting light for electricity generation, blocking it for heat insulation and transmitting it as a window normally would to construct a prototype capable of simultaneously outputting electricity and preventing excessive heating.
By mixing and matching different materials and chemical compounds previously used for the different window functions, the researchers were able to create a device that let familiar visible portions of sunlight through, while turning back the infrared light and converting the near-infrared region in-between into an electric current.
Back-of-the-envelope calculations suggest that, in theory, installing windows outfitted with dual electricity-generating and heat- insulating properties could cut an average household's reliance on external electric sources by over 50 percent.
While it is estimated that every square inch of every window would be paneled with multifunctional solar cells, the new windows only require a slight uptick in power-conversion performance from the 6.5 percent figure realized by the researchers.
“For this demonstration, we are not even using the best organic photovoltaics that are out there in this field,” Yip said. “Their efficiency is improving rapidly, and we expect to be able to continuously improve the performance of this unified solar-cell window film.”
Along with new energy efficient window, the researchers believe the dual-functioning materials could be used various emerging technologies.
“Making heat-insulating multifunctional semitransparent polymer solar cells is just the beginning of exploring new applications of organic photovoltaics,” Yip said. “A version tailored for self-powered greenhouses is only one of many impactful products that we want to develop for the future.”

The Russian energy and finance ministries agreed with oil companies to start cutting the export duty on crude gradually, to bring it from the current 30 percent to zero over the next six years.
The Russian energy and finance ministries agreed with oil companies to start cutting the export duty on crude gradually, to bring it from the current 30 percent to zero over the next six years, government sources told Reuters.
The duty will be cut by 5 percent annually over the period, as part of a wider tax reform that seeks to replace the export duties and mineral resources extraction taxes with a single tax based on the profits that oil companies in Russia make.
Currently, the oil export duty is tied to oil prices, and calculations for May saw it 6 percent higher than in April, at US$118.5 per ton of oil, based on a price of US$65.80 per barrel.
The idea of phasing out the export duties is not new. Last year, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said the end of the duty will come no earlier than 2022-2025. Now, the six-year phase-out plan will see it gone by 2023. This compares to earlier and much more ambitious plans to have it scrapped by 2020.
The oil industry in Russia is backing the tax reform, which will make it easier for the government to collect taxes from the companies directly instead of calculating export duties. For the oil companies, it would be simpler, too, and a direct profit-based tax would encourage higher production as it would be more directly linked to exploration costs and risks, Reuters reported back in March 2017.
The tax overhaul is also connected to plans announced by central bank governor Elvira Nabiullina in 2016 to reduce the federal budget’s reliance on the exports of mineral resources. The plan was announced at the height of the oil price crisis. At the time, Nabiullina admitted this will not be an easy or smooth process, but it could contribute to the country’s economic growth.
Everyone needs to educate themselves before they invest. Four things you must know first then you will continue to learn as you go. But you must educate yourself four basics to get started on the right foot. A little education will help you to handle risk more effectively. How about a real estate investment?
1. Overcome Your Fear With Knowledge
Learning about real estate will help to manage your fear of the unknown, uncertainty and unexpected events. Arming with right education, you’re more likely to take the leaps necessary to progress to the next level. More importantly, it will help to reach your investment objectives or goals.
Where do you learn about real estate? A good place to start is to read books, newspapers, magazines and online articles on related topics. One resource will lead to another, and then another. You find yourself asking questions or wanting more information on a specific topic, it will guide you to the next article, book, blog or webinar.
2. Ordinary People Can Be Successful
You don’t need to have any innate real estate talent or know-how from beginning. You will truly see that most people can learn to invest. You don’t need a degree in law, finance, business, investment or real estate. In fact, you don’t need huge sums of cash. Ordinary people just like you, with ordinary reserves of cash, have achieved great results in real estate investment.
3. Select a Category of Real Estate
It will help you to narrow down which area of real estate you’d like to concentrate. There are two main categories: Residential and Commercial. When you understand some of the unique qualities of each category of real estate, you’re more likely to discover the type and location that best align with your investment strategy.
4. Work with Experts to Assist with Your Investment Strategy
It will also help you to identify which experts might be best for your particular kind of investment strategy. When you assemble your team of advisers, one of them will be your real estate agent. He or she will be an expert in one particular sector—the one you’re investing in—but most likely will not be an expert in other sectors. For example, he or she might specialize in duplexes (residential), but not strip malls (commercial). So by focusing with one category, you can retain the same team of advisers.

Growth is projected to rebound at around 15% in 2018 and an average 7.6% in 2019-20. Both the fiscal and current account balances will significantly improve, with the budget and the current account running surpluses expected from 2020 onwards
At the current pace of spending in a context of conflict and insecurity, Libya will either exhaust foreign exchange reserves or be forced into ad hoc adjustments necessary to stave off crisis, but far from sufficient to reestablish growth foundations.
The economic and social outlook assumes that political strife is resolved and a unified government can ensure macro-stability and launch a comprehensive program to rebuild the economic and social infrastructures.
In this context, it is expected that oil production will progressively increase to reach its potential (around 1.5 million barrels per day (bpd)) by 2020, which is the time necessary to restore the heavily damaged oil infrastructure.

Foreign reserves will also start building up by 2020. They will average US$72.5 billion during 2018-2020, representing the equivalent of 27.5 months of imports.
However, high inflation coupled with weak basic service delivery are likely to have increased poverty and exacerbated socio-economic exclusion. In 2017, inflation accelerated, exacerbating further the hardship of the population.
Prices of all commodities continued to increase, mainly driven by acute shortages in the supply chains of basic commodities, speculation in the expanding black markets, and the strong devaluation of the Libyan dinar (LYD) in the parallel markets. Consequently, inflation hit a record level of 28.4% in 2017 following the 25.9% in 2016.
The relative economic improvement in 2017 remains fragile, as sustaining this dynamic depends crucially on a political resolution that in the current context seems hard to reach. The macroeconomic framework is unstable. It is characterized by record inflation and unsustainable twin deficits, mostly driven by rising budget expenditures. Dwindling savings are keeping pressure on foreign reserves and the LYD continued to lose its value in the parallel markets. To stabilize the macroeconomic framework, Libya needs to launch budget reforms and diversify the economy for growth and job creation.
Following four years of recession, the Libyan economy grew strongly in 2017, driven by a welcome recovery in oil production. However, sustaining this dynamic to reach economic potential depends on the resolve of the political strife. Exceptional but fragile implicit arrangements between the parties in conflict allowed the oil sector to more than double its production to an average 0.820 million barrels per day (bpd) in 2017, compared to only 0.380 million in 2016. The non-hydrocarbon sectors remained sluggish inhibited by lack of liquidity and security. GDP is estimated to have increased by almost 27 percent in 2017 allowing income per capita to substantially improve to 63 percent of its 2010 level after losing more than half of its value.

Consequently, inflation hit a record level of 28.4 percent in 2017 following the 25.9 percent in 2016. High inflation coupled with weak basic service delivery are likely to have increased poverty and exacerbated socioeconomic exclusion.
Despite higher hydrocarbon revenues, public finances remained under stress, given the high and rigid current expenditures driven by political motives. Budget revenues almost tripled in 2017 (31.8 percent of GDP) compared to 2016, but remained at half of potential. However, revenues were not even enough to cover public wages (36.4 percent of GDP), which increased due to political hires and higher salaries. Inefficient subsidies (9.2 percent of GDP) continued to absorb a significant amount of budget resources while capital expenditures remained weak (4.8 percent of GDP). Consequently, a high budget deficit persisted at 26 percent of GDP in 2017 (63.1 percent of GDP in 2016). The deficit is being financed mainly through cash advances from the Central Bank of Libya. The domestic debt has quickly increased to reach LYD 59 billion end September 2017, up from LYD 1 billion in 2010.
Although improving, the balance of payments continues to suffer from politically constrained production and export of oil and high consumption-induced imports. Libya managed to substantially increase oil export in 2017 (0.7 million bpd), but remained at half of potential. This relative performance is not enough for a sustainable current account considering the high dependence of Libya on imports to meet consumption and intermediate goods requirements. As a result, the current account deficit remained high at an estimated 9.4 percent of GDP. This deficit was fully financed by net foreign financial inflow, allowing foreign reserves to remain unchanged in 2017 at around US$ 72.6 billion. While the pegged official exchange rate was kept stable, the Libyan Dinar lost around 85 percent of its value in the parallel market due to the weak macroeconomic fundamentals and an illiquid banking system.
At the current pace of spending in a context of conflict and insecurity, Libya will either exhaust foreign exchange reserves or be forced into ad hoc adjustments necessary to stave off crisis, but far from sufficient to reestablish growth foundations.

Foreign reserves will start building up by 2020. They will average US$72.5 billion during 2018-2020, representing the equivalent of 27.5 months of imports.
Risks and challenges
The baseline macroeconomic scenario presented above is very fragile because it requires upholding the implicit agreement between the parties in conflict to ensure minimum security around oil infrastructure. Moreover, an improved macroeconomic outlook is unlikely to be sustained and is not sufficient to bring about significant change, unless immediate and targeted actions are taken to address the humanitarian crisis. The country needs humanitarian aid and specific programs to address the destruction and lack of basic services that a large part of the population faces.
Immediate challenges are to restore peace that would lead to macroeconomic stability and to improve basic public services. This calls for immediate actions to bring current expenditures under control, especially the wage bill and subsidies, and improve governance of the financial sector, which will also contribute to price stability. Over the medium term, the country needs broader and deeper structural reforms to stabilize the macroeconomic framework and promote private sector-led job generation. Other medium term priorities should focus on promoting the development and diversification of the private sector for job creation through policies to reorient the economy away from hydrocarbon dependence, reforming the financial sector, and improving the business environment.
Libya’s economic fragility has important consequences for the people’s well-being. Although there is no systematic study on poverty and very little evidence on the current well-being of Libyan households, it is not unrealistic to think that for most of Libyans living conditions are dire. Since hydrocarbons account for a large share of GDP and government revenues (40 and 86 percent respectively), the sharp decline in oil exports started in 2011 has severely impacted public services. The erratic power supply and the recurrent food shortages also contribute to worsening conditions for people. In the current situation, large share of the population is either vulnerable to poverty or has fallen into poverty.
