What Is Probate?
In its simplest form, probate refers to the legal process of validating and executing wills, trusts, and other estate planning documents. After validating the presented documents, probate courts appoint an executor that becomes responsible for the fulfillment of the will, including the resolution of remaining tax liabilities, debts, and the distribution of inheritances as dictated by the deceased.
It can, however, become a far more complicated process without sufficient or existing estate planning documents. If your loved one passed before establishing an outline for their estate, their assets and holdings could be frozen and held by the state until the probate court can decide how to distribute them. While probate courts attempt to align this process with common or traditional estate wishes or preferences, genuine alignment with the last wishes of the deceased is unlikely.
