Probate is a court proceeding in which a person’s assets are retitled and distributed after he or she passes away. Assets are distributed as outlined in the decedent’s will or, if there is no will, according to what is known as the Law of Intestacy. In the latter case, the decedent’s assets are distributed according to State guidelines.
