Black Law – Probate
Probate is the legal process by which a decedent’s estate is settled and title to property held in the decedent’s name, which has not otherwise been legally transferred, is transferred to heirs and beneficiaries under the supervision of the court. In essence, probate is the court’s way of determining where and to whom property should go after the death of a loved one, if that person has not left behind any formal written instructions. Probate deals with issues ranging from the execution of a will, determination of legal heirs, payment of debts, or the settlement of disputes related to a deceased’s property or affairs.
