Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, accomplished by resolving all claims and distributing the property of the deceased under a valid will. A probate interprets the instructions of the deceased, decides the executor of the estate, and determines rights and obligations heirs and other parties who may have claims against the estate.
Avoiding probate will normally save substantial costs (the probate courts, in some states, charge a fee based on a percentage net worth of the deceased), time, and maintain privacy (the probate records are available to the public, while distribution through a trust is private).
