How Does Probate Work?
The term “probate” generally refers to the administration of an individual’s estate following his or her death. The probate process will vary depending on whether the individual had executed a will prior to his or her death.
Probate With a Will
When someone dies with a will in place, the estate will still need to go through probate, but the process will generally be simpler and take much less time than it would with no will. Probate will involve establishing the validity of the will, executing the person’s instructions, and paying applicable taxes.
Probate Without a Will
When someone dies intestate (without a will), the probate court will need to divide the estate according to applicable state intestacy laws, even if the distribution doesn’t necessarily reflect what the individual would have wanted. This is just one reason why estate planning is so important.
