When a loved one dies, there are many difficult emotions and challenges that follow. The probate process is one of the most common issues that people deal with after an individual has passed away. What is probate? It is basically the legal process in which a deceased's estate is handled and distributed.
In cases where there is no will, state law will determine how assets and property are divided and distributed. The process includes a variety of paperwork, court appearances, and other details.
