What Is Probate?

You may have heard the term probate during discussions about estate administration, but you’re probably not entirely sure what it means. Put simply, the term probate refers to the legal process of administering the estate of someone who has passed away. It includes everything that must be done to resolve any claims against the estate and distribute the deceased’s assets.

Usually an executor or administrator, often a family member or someone designated in the Will, is appointed to oversee the distribution of the estate. Having a probate attorney to walk you through this process can be invaluable, saving you time and helping you sort through complex details.
