Probate is the process by which the property of the deceased is distributed in accordance with their last wishes or as directed by statute if their is no last will. It is also the way any claims by creditors may be resolved.
It is commenced by filing a petition with the probate court for the county where the decedent resided when they died.
The probate court will determine the validity of any last wills submitted and appoint an executor to act as the legal representative of the estate for the purpose of administering the assets and liabilities of the estate.
