If your loved one died without a will in place, their estate will have to go through probate. The probate process involves administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims against that estate, and distributing his or her property according to a will. It also addresses the estates of incapacitated people who, for various reasons, can no longer handle their own affairs.
