What is Probate Court?

When a relative has died, you may be told that you have to go to probate court. But what exactly is probate court and who or what needs to go through probate?

In short, probate court involves the property and debts of a deceased person. The court makes sure that creditors are paid off and then aids in distributing remaining assets to those determined to be proper beneficiaries. Click here  to learn more.
