A. Holker, Allison After the untimely death of her late husband, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, the surviving spouse has petitioned a California court for her share of the couple’s joint fortune.
Stephen committed suicide on December 13. He was 40.
People learned on Wednesday that Allison had filed a California Spousal Property Petition in a California Superior Court in Los Angeles County on Monday, as is customary in such cases. Surviving spouses in California are legally entitled to their dead partner’s share of the couple’s joint inheritance, but the burden of proof rests on the living partner.
In the statement, Allison requests a “determination of property passing to the surviving spouse” and “confirmation of property belonging to the surviving spouse.”
According to the records, Stephen passed away intestate (without a will).
In the document, Allison lists the various assets that she believes she is entitled to as Stephen’s surviving husband, including quasi-community property.
“This includes any interest in a trade or business name of any unincorporated business or an interest in any unincorporated business that the deceased partner was operating or managing at the time of death,” court papers assert in part.
The management of Stephen’s estate is not something Allison wants.
The document also provides details about Allison and Stephen’s relationship, including the dates of their wedding and their “nil” combined net worth, which Allison hopes would serve as proof that she is, in fact, Stephen’s surviving husband. After the wedding, Stephen did not become the beneficiary of any of the couple’s assets. This includes gifts, joint tenancy, life insurance, and other types of inheritance.
“To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt,” she continued. “I am certain there won’t be a day that we won’t honour his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children.”Allison concluded by addressing a last message to her husband. In closing, she said, “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
