What is Probate?

Probate estate administration is the court process by which the property of a person who has died is distributed. Probate estate administration involves gathering the assets, paying debts and final expenses, and distributing the remaining assets. Probate is necessary if a person has a will, and is often necessary if a person dies without a will (also known as intestate).

The probate process can be confusing, and there are specific timelines that must be met. Consulting with a probate lawyer will help you avoid mistakes in administration and make sure you are not held personally liable for the decedent's debts. Legal fees are paid from the estate.
