What Probate Entails

Probate is a word used to describe a legal process that occurs following someone's death. After a person passes away, the first step would be to determine if a probate is needed. The court must prove his or her will to be valid; otherwise, any dealings with the estate cannot proceed.

The probate process often includes the following steps:
  • Prepare documents to be filed with the court to appoint a personal representative
  • Inventory estate assets
  • Pay outstanding claims and taxes
  • Distributing property as stated in the will
In the absence of a will, state laws of intestacy would apply. All related paperwork and court appearances fall under the process of probate administration. Likewise, the management of wills, trusts, estates, and executor duties also represent important pieces in the whole of probate law.
