Probate is the legal process of the distribution of a deceased person’s estate to the heirs and beneficiaries, as handled by specialized probate attorneys.

It is done so according to the decedent’s last will. If the decedent is without a last will, then distribution will proceed according to the state law.

Each state has specific laws or “probate codes” to probate an estate. State laws also determine what happens if a decedent dies without a will.
