PROBATE CODE
SECTION 8100




8100.  The notice of hearing of a petition for administration of a
decedent's estate, whether served under Article 2 (commencing with
Section 8110) or published under Article 3 (commencing with Section
8120), shall state substantially as follows:


                NOTICE OF PETITION TO
                     ADMINISTER
     ESTATE OF ___________, ESTATE NO. ________
  To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, and

  estate, or both:

  the Superior Court of California, County of
  _________, requesting that _________ be
  appointed as personal representative to
  administer the estate of _________ (and for
  probate of the decedent's will, which is
  available for examination in the court file).
  (The petition requests authority to administer
  the estate under the Independent Administration
  of Estates Act. This will avoid the need to
  obtain court approval for many actions taken in
  connection with the estate. However, before
  taking certain actions, the personal
  representative will be required to give notice
  to interested persons unless they have waived
  notice or have consented to the proposed
  action. The petition will be granted unless
  good cause is shown why it should not be.)
  The petition is set for hearing in Dept. No. ___

                                        (Address)
  on ___________________ at _________
                   (Date of hearing)      (Time of
  _________ .
  hearing)

   IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear
at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections
with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person
or by your attorney.
   IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased,
you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the
personal representative appointed by the court within the later of
either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to
a general personal representative, as defined in subdivision (b) of
Section 58 of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the
date of mailing or personal delivery of the notice to you under
Section 9052 of the California Probate Code.
   YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are interested
in the estate, you may request special notice of the filing of an
inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or
account as provided in Section 1250 of the California Probate Code.
