Probate – a word that many don’t know the meaning of, or fear because of its reputation as a confusing and stressful process. In short, probate is the court-supervised process used to transfer your loved one’s assets to the appropriate heirs and beneficiaries. Probate is designed to serve as a protection against fraud by freezing an estate’s assets until a judge can confirm that everything is in order with the Will, beneficiaries, and creditors.
