What is probate? (Nick Kaster discusses with "Reel Lawyers")


Probate is a process by which a court oversees the administration of a deceased persons estate. In cases where a person has a will there’ll be an application made to the probate court and the court will kind of look over the shoulder of the person administering the estate or the personal representative to make sure that the personal representative follows the terms of the will and does everything that the deceased person intended as expressed in his or her documents.
