Probate administration is the all-encompassing name for the administration of one’s estate at death through the courts. It is a court-supervised process for distributing the individually owned assets of a deceased person. Assets are distributed to beneficiaries in accordance to the instructions written in the person’s will. This process takes places both where there is a Will and where there is no estate plan in place. It is the responsibility of the Executor or personal representative of the estate to make sure that the estate is faithfully probated.
