So what the heck does probate even mean? Not surprisingly, most people have no idea what the probate estate administration process entails until they find themselves unwittingly dragged into. Unfortunately, this process typically coincides with the death of a loved one. So not only are you dealing with a sad and emotionally charged situation to start with, but you now find yourself dealing with a complicated and often frustrating legal process at the same time.
Here's an article that I recently came across that does a nice job of breaking down into laymen terms what probate is and how the process works. Take a look.
