After a loved one dies, it is usually necessary to begin the probate process. Probate is the legal process in court of authenticating a will (if there is one), appointing an executor or administrator to oversee the estate, paying or settling debts, carrying out the wishes of the deceased, and transferring assets. The probate process can be lengthy, often taking an average six months to a year to complete, and legal challenges against the estate can increase the time significantly. The process can be time consuming, frustrating, and difficult.
