The process will oversee all claims that arise, as well as the distribution of the deceased’s property, according to the decedent’s will. A will is a legal document that outlines the wishes of the deceased person. An executor is appointed during the probate process, and if the person died intestate, or without a will, the probate process will oversee that person’s property distribution as well.Another process that is done by probate is the appointment of a guardian, in the event a person is unable to make personal decisions on their own. This could be a financial decision, or a medical or health decision. The probate court would then appoint someone who is able to make those decisions.
