What Is Probate?
So, what is probate? Probate is a judicial process of validation of a deceased person’s will, administration of decedent’s estate, and distribution of assets to heirs or other named beneficiaries.
Since every individual estate is unique and each state has its own set of probate laws, the probate process can vary in every situation. The type of probate needed depends on the size and complexity of the estate and whether the person died with or without a will (intestate).
Probate is typically a lengthy and stressful process that requires a good understanding of legal regulations, preparing and filing various documents in a timely manner, and multiple court appointments. The probate process is a nightmare for most families, so it is best to get help from an experienced attorney during these challenging times.
