An estate probate is the legal process of administering a deceased individual's estate by resolving all claims and delivering all property according to the underlying will. An estate probate is the tangible action of dispensing the deceased individual's property and the assets attached to the property to that person's designated inheritors.
An estate probate is administered by a surrogate court. The court decides the validity of the will and then initiates the probate when the individual passes away. A probate interprets the instructions of the deceased’s will and imitates the intended action of the deceased individual. In addition, the surrogate court will execute the delivery of assets and property as the executor and personal representative of the estate and adjudicates the desires or interests of the inheritors and other parties who have claims on the estate.
