What is probate?

Probate is the legal process that takes place after you pass away. If you have a Will, your executor will file the necessary papers at the probate court.  This may include presenting a Will, having property appraised, paying debts and taxes then distributing remaining assets as the Will directs. If no Will is present then all assets will be distributed according to local state law.
