What is Probate?
Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, which includes gathering and valuing assets, paying any outstanding debts, and distributing the remaining assets to beneficiaries named in the will or under the rules of intestacy if there is no will. The process can be complicated, and it’s important to get expert legal advice to ensure that everything is done correctly.
