The Probate Process Probate is the legal process of transferring a person's assets upon death through the provisions of a will. In contrast, Estate Administration deals with the transfer of a person's assets upon death, when the decedent leaves no will, under the laws of intestate succession. Testate ~ A person dies "testate" when he or she passes leaving a will that disposes of his or her estate. Under the probate process for a decedent who dies testate, the first step in the process is to determine the validity of the will. A personal representative is then appointed and is responsible for managing the estate throughout probate and carrying out the terms of the will. Intestate ~ When a person dies without leaving a will, the person is said to have died "intestate." In such case, a person's assets are distributed according to the laws of intestate succession. The law sets forth specific guidelines for the distribution of assets to a decedent's heirs. Distribution of assets is usually made to the surviving spouse and children. If there is no spouse or descendants, the distribution may be made to parents, siblings, or other extended family members.   Probate Lawyer in Tulsa | The Law Office of Mark O.
