Probate+LawProbate: even the term can carry an air of mystery and complexity.  However, it is not as confusing as it appears. Simply put, “probate” is the steps in a process of establishing a will’s validity, otherwise known as the admittance of a will, in order that a will may be administered in a court proceeding. The court must determine whether or not the deceased, or decedent, had a will in place in order to begin transferring the assets from the deceased to his or her beneficiaries: this is the probate process.
