What Is Probate?

Probate is the legal process that is used to settle the estate of a deceased person. It is a court-supervised process that ensures that the deceased's debts are paid and that their property is distributed according to their will or the laws of intestacy.

Probate is not required in every situation, and there are several options for distributing a person's property after their death. However, it is often the best option for handling a person's assets, as it gives families and individuals the time and resources they need to sort through their loved one's belongings, make decisions about what to keep and what to donate, and make plans for their loved one's final resting place.
