Probate

Probate is the process by which the court supervises the transfer of assets from the deceased's estate to his or her intended beneficiaries if there is a will. If there is no will, then the court decides how the property should be distributed. The process of probate is also to make sure that the estate's taxes and creditors are paid in the appropriate order.
