Probate is an—often complicated—formal, legal process in which the affairs of an estate are wound up. Almost all estates must be probated, unless the deceased engaged in estate planning. The process involves going to probate court, allowing for creditor claims, and arranging the formal transfer of assets to heirs and beneficiaries. Contact Barbara M.
