What is probate?
Probate is the process after someone’s death to verify the legality of their estate and ensure their wishes are carried out. Having a will can help make this process smoother because it is another document outlining what you wish to do with your assets after death.
Even if you have a will, your estate must go through a probate court for validation. After that, the judge will appoint someone to distribute your assets accordingly.
