Probate involves the process of transferring property and settling the probate estate. The probate estate is comprised of all the property owned by the decedent at the time of their death.

The probate process begins with admitting the deceased person’s will in court. Following the acceptance of the will by the court, the personal representative will be appointed. The personal representative will then possess the requisite legal powers to settle the deceased person’s estate, including the payment and collection of any remaining debts, filing taxes, and distributing assets to beneficiaries.
