What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person's estate. It involves identifying and gathering the assets of the deceased, paying their debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries or heirs. The probate process is supervised by the court to ensure that everything is done according to the law and the deceased person's wishes.
