What is probate?

Question: What is probate?

Answer: Probate is the process by which the assets you own upon your death are transferred to your heirs. The state of Ohio has a probate court in each county and that court is responsible for administrating your estate and overseeing the fact that if you have a will that the direction in your will is followed and if you do not have a will then under the probate process the laws of intestacy will control who receives your property upon your death and the court will appoint an administrator to see that the state provisions are carried out for your estate.
