The death of a loved one is a stressful time. The stressful time continues after your loved ones death, when you are required to settle your loved ones affairs. Probate, also known as estate administration, is the legal process utilized to gather, maintain and distribute a decedent's assets to the legatees of a will or to the heirs-at-law if the decedent left no will.
During this process an executor is appointed, the decedent's assets are gathered, creditors are paid, and the remaining assets are distributed to legatees or heirs-at-law. Estate administration can be lengthy and difficult with or without a will.
