The ” probate process ” involves following and carrying out the wishes as stated in an individual’s Last Will and Testament. This could include the actual probate of a person’s Will. When there is no Will, this process involves following state law on how the decedent’s assets must be handled and petitioning the probate court for the authority to administer that person’s estate.
