Probate is the legal process that results in a court validating someone’s will or determining that he or she died without one. The court, as part of the probate, will appoint someone to handle the bills of the deceased as well as his or her assets and that person is referred to as the administrator or the executor. If your loved one owned his or her assets through a well-drafted and properly-funded living trust, it is likely that no Court-managed administration is necessary, though the successor trustee needs to administer the distribution of the deceased’s assets.
