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.
