Probate is a court process designed to distribute certain assets on death. Assets that are in joint ownership, that have a beneficiary or are owned by an entity such as a trust or corporation will avoid probate. Assets that go through probate are distributed according to your will or, if no will, then by the law of intestacy. Probate is generally considered to be expensive, time-consuming and open to the public.
