Probate is the legal process through which a deceased person’s estate is settled and distributed to their heirs or beneficiaries.

It involves validating the deceased person’s will (if there is one) and resolving any claims or disputes related to their estate.

The probate process typically involves the appointment of an executor or administrator to oversee the distribution of the deceased person’s assets, the payment of any outstanding debts or taxes, and the transfer of ownership of the property to the beneficiaries.

The process can be complex and time-consuming and may involve court hearings or other legal procedures.
