If you have been entrusted with settling a loved one's estate, the first step is the probate process. This
process is applicable regardless of whether there was a will in place or the details of the estate. It is the
legal process by which a deceased's assets are properly utilized and distributed according to the law
and estate planning.
The estate is analyzed to determine its assets and ownership
The will, if one exists, is read and compared to the assets of the estate
Any outstanding debts are fulfilled using liquidated assets from the estate where legally applicable
Remaining assets are distributed according to the wishes outlined in the will
If there is no will, the estate is distributed according to the law
