Probate is a legal document that represents the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will. A probate court or surrogate court then decides the legal validity of a testator’s will and grants its approval, also known as granting probate, to the executor. The probate will then become a legal instrument that may be enforced by the executor in the law courts if necessary. A probate also officially appoints the executor or personal representative, generally named in the will, as having legal power to dispose of the testator’s assets in the manner specified in the testator’s will.
