When someone passes away, all property the person owned at their death, known as their estate, is transferred, or distributed to his or her heirs, through a process known as probate or trust administration. This occurs whether or not there is a will or trust agreement. All probate and trust matters are handled in a special division of the court system, called probate court. And it is important to comply with the probate laws to ensure that all transfers are legal.
