What is probate? Probate is how a court handles an estate after someone passes away. 

As Investopedia explains:

“A probate is a legal process in which a will is reviewed to determine whether it is valid and authentic.”

A common question that we hear from clients is: “Will my estate go to probate if I have a will?”
