What is Probate? 

 

In Latin, Probate means “to prove.”

 

Probate is the procedure in which the Court gives validity to a person’s Will. When a Will remains after a person’s death, the nominated Executor should take the essential documents - Death Certificate, Will, and the standard packet of Probate forms to the Surrogate’s Court in the County where either -

 

i) The Decedent died, or 

ii) The Decedent left the property. 

 

The documents will be reviewed at the court, provided all is in order.
