Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

AB 327

  • California Assembly Bill

  • Introduced in Assembly

Estates and trusts: at-death transfers.

Abstract

Existing law provides that either spouse may enter into any real property transaction with the other or any other person, and in transactions between themselves are subject to the general rules governing fiduciary relationships, which are the same rights and duties governing nonmarital business partners. Existing law provides that this confidential relationship imposes a duty of the highest good faith and fair dealing on each spouse and prohibits each spouse from taking unfair advantage of the other. Existing law exempts certain circumstances from these provisions, including, among others, situations involving waivers of spousal rights. This bill would additionally exempt at-death transfers between spouses by will, revocable trust, beneficiary form, or other instrument from the above-described provisions and any presumptions of undue influence arising from those provisions. The bill would clarify that other statutory or common law presumptions of undue influence may apply to these transfers.
