The probate process is a process that many people are forced to go through when a loved one dies. It is during this process that the validity of a will is determined, that the estate is valued for estate tax purposes, and that creditors have the chance to make claims on the will. The probate process also offers a chance for a will to be contested and can determine who inherits under intestacy law when the deceased person did not leave a will behind.
The probate process can be complicated, and those who have a legal interest in an estate being probated should have an experienced attorney representing them.
