A probate is the legal process in which the law makes sure the property goes to all legal beneficiaries, all creditors are paid, and all assets are gathered. When a deceased individual leaves behind a will, the court administers the will and an appointed individual known as a ‘Personal Representative’ distributes the assets as is stated in the will. The presence of a will allows a person to distribute assets according to their wishes. If, suppose, a person has not drawn a will and has passed away, that person’s wishes cannot be followed if they conflict with intestacy laws. Intestacy law applies even if that person’s wishes were known previously but not drafted in a will.
Probate refers to the process by which a court determines whether a person's Will is valid. Once the validity of a Will has been established, Probate describes the administration of the estate. Whether or not the decedent has left a will, you need a competent probate attorney to oversee the distribution of assets. Probate administration settles an estate under the supervision of the court.
