I live in California and beginning to create my will. Should I have to file either with the courts for them to be valid? Any reply would be appreciated.

Usually, and in most jurisdictions, wills are not filed with any courts if the creators are alive. However, after the death of the will-maker, it needs to be presented before the court to have it probated so that the executor can be bestowed with the power to act on behalf of the estate.
