What is Probate?

Next » « Previous


"Probate" is a court-supervised process that determines whether a document is a valid Will. Once a Will is declared to be valid, the court generally supervises the payment of a deceased's debts and disbursement of the remaining assets as provided in the Will.

In a broader sense, "probate" also includes the process by which the assets your Will covers are distributed.

When a Will is probated it becomes a document available to the public. The public also gets to see the assets which are being probated.
