Probate is basically the process of passing the assets of a deceased person to his or her heirs after the creditors are paid and if there is a Will, establishing the validity of the Will. When it is necessary to administer an estate through probate, it is important to have an attorney assist you who understands the probate process. Trying to do probate on your own generally leads to problems, including more costs and fees and the process taking a lot more time than it otherwise would take.
