The Basics.. What’s Probate?

The word probate is the process in which the court validates a will. Once validated, the probate attorney, along with the Executor/Executrix oversee the distribution of any debt incurred by the deceased, as well as compiling the assets in preparation for distribution to beneficiaries. The transfer of assets and paying off any debt are part of answering the question, “What’s probate regarding a will?

If a will was not created prior to death, the courts will intervene. Unfortunately, this process is costly. Probate, supervised or unsupervised may be necessary under the following circumstances:


  • If a will exists, to prove it is valid.

  • If an Executor/Executrix or Trustee is not named in the will, one will be assigned.

  • If there is no will, the court will appoint an Administrator. 

  • Compile the assets and debts of the estate.

  • Distribute assets.

  • Pay off debts including the payment of taxes.
