What is Probate?
Probate is the process through which the estate of the deceased is administered. If the deceased person left a will, then it governs the disposition of the estate. If there is no will, then a different process is followed.
Probate courts will generally do the following things to administer an estate:
- Determine if there is a valid will
- Complete an inventory of all your property and assets
- Appraise all of the property and assets in the estate
- Distribute all of the property in accordance with the will or the orders of the probate judge
