Probate is the legal process by which a person’s debts are paid and assets are distributed upon her or his death. Estate Administration includes the probate process as well as non-probate transfers of the deceased’s assets. If there is a will, the property goes to the named beneficiaries. If the decedent left no will, assets are distributed according to state laws of intestate succession.
