Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person by resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under the valid will. A probate court decides the validity of an estator’s will or how an estate will pass if the decendent died without an estate plan. A probate proceeding interprets the instructions of the deceased, decides the personal representative of the estate, adjudicates the interests of heirs and other parties who may have claims against the estate, and orders the estate distributed according to the decendent's will or law.
