Probate is the legal process that follows an individual’s death that determines the validity of a will or trust and ultimately distributes estate assets to the intended beneficiaries. Probate also provides a method by which the will or trust of the deceased can be challenged, and by which creditors of the estate can be notified and given the opportunity to file claims against the estate.
Probate may be a costly and time-intensive process if the deceased did not have an expertly crafted will or trust. The process can take months or even years to complete. It can be a particularly trying time for beneficiaries, as assets included in the probate of an estate are not available until the conclusion of the process. This is why many people include probate avoidance strategies in their estate planning.
