Probate is a court-supervised proceeding that takes place after someone dies with property in his or her name where one of the following scenarios apply:

  1. the deceased person had only a will,
  2. the deceased person did not have a living trust, and/or
  3. summary proceedings are unavailable.

Probate is typically handled by attorneys that are familiar with the probate process and involves the filing of a great deal of paperwork with the court. Before the persons who inherit the deceased person’s estate receive their inheritance, the lawyer’s fees and court fees are paid from estate property.
