PRACTICE POINTER: Make sure to calendar your four month date for the inventory to be filed and make sure that at least a partial inventory is on file by that date to show your client is attempting to comply with the probate code. You never want to expose your client to a petition for removal (or suspension of powers) and filing all of the little rules helps prevent such a removal petition!
