What Is Probate?
When a person passes away, all of their assets and valuable property must
go through a process called probate before they can be transferred to
their beneficiaries. Probate courts check to see if the deceased party
had a valid will naming an executor of the estate. If there is no executor
for the estate, the court will appoint one to sort out creditor claims
against the estate and distribute assets to beneficiaries.
