Probate is the process of analyzing and administering an estate’s assets that were previously possessed by a deceased person. When a property owner passes away, his or her assets are frequently examined by a probate court. The probate court makes the final determination regarding asset split and distribution to beneficiaries. Typically, a probate case will begin by determining whether or not the deceased person left a legalized will.
