QUESTION: You have provided information about Osher Lifelong Learning Institute classes in the past. Do you have any information about the single-session classes being offered between the fall and winter semesters?
ANSWER: Yes — I was given that information last week. During the semester break, six classes will be offered at two locations:
“Kemal Ataturk, the Art of Leadership, and the Kemalist Revolution” will be offered from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Nov. 12 at CSU Channel Islands’ Broome Library.
“Is There a Planetary Home for Extra-Terrestrials” is scheduled for 1-3 p.m. Nov. 16 at Ventura Adult and Continuing Education.
“The Diversity Paradox: The Promise Peril and Potential of Difference in America” will be offered from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Nov. 19 at CSU Channel Islands’ Broome Library.
“Through Barbed Wire: World War II and the Japanese American Experience” will be offered from 1-3 p.m. Nov. 30 at Ventura Adult and Continuing Education and again from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Dec. 3 at CSU Channel Islands’ Broome Library.

As I read the description of each of these classes, I found each one more interesting than the one before. There seems to have something for everyone. Don’t miss out; registration is in progress.

QUESTION: I have just moved to California from the East Coast and need to know if such a move makes it necessary to have a new will prepared. If a new will is not needed, in which state would my executor present my existing will for probate?
ANSWER: Since relocation is very common nowadays, your question might be on the minds of many others.
You do not need to execute a new will because of your move from one state to another. A written will made outside California is valid in California if it complied with the laws of the state in which it was executed.
You should review your will periodically to ensure it reflects your current wishes. Addition or deletion of assets, as well as family changes such as marriage, death, divorce, birth or adoption, should serve as reminders to review your legal papers and, if necessary, update them to reflect your current wishes.
Your executor must present your will for probate in the jurisdiction (county and state) in which you were a resident at the time of your death. If your estate includes real property in other jurisdictions, additional probate will be required in those jurisdictions for the purpose of proving title and for protection of local creditors at those locations.
