What is Probate?

Probate is the court-supervised process of resolving the obligations of a deceased person’s estate and distributing their assets according to their will. It begins with the court appointing an administrator for the estate, either based on the decedent’s will or by choosing among petitions from close relatives. Once chosen, the administrator will be responsible for assessing the estate’s assets as well as any lingering debts or tax obligations.

Once these are paid off, the estate will be distributed as described in the decedent’s will. In the absence of a will, the administrator and the court will work together to try to distribute assets fairly among the family.
