Probate is the legal process that takes place after someone passes away. When you lose a loved one who has a drafted will, the executor will then have four years after the date of death to file for probate. If the decedent passes away without a drafted will the intestacy laws decide how the decedent’s assets are distributed. The legal steps that actually take place will vary from case to case depending on what circumstances are involved.
