Probate court determines if a device offered as a will is valid. If the court deems the will valid, it will supervise the distribution of property based on the terms defined in the will. In most cases the deceased will have named the executor in the will. The executor named will oversee the distribution of assets during the probate process.
If a person dies without a will, the estate will still undergo the probate process. An administrator may be appointed by the court to divide the property. The probate court must then approve the administrator’s distribution of the decedent’s assets.
