Probate law is the legal process of administering the estate of an individual who has died. The probate process can be very complicated and confusing because there are many steps that need to be taken in order to complete it.
The first step in the probate process is determining if the deceased person had a will or not. If they did, then their will dictates what happens with their assets and property. If they did not have a will, then state law dictates what happens with their assets and property.
The process of probating an estate requires the executor or personal representative of the deceased’s estate to file a petition with the court and follow certain procedures in order to gain permission to distribute assets according to the will or state law.
