Probate is the court proceeding through which a will is proved to be valid and the estate of a decedent is administered. The process, generally, includes collecting a decedent's assets, liquidating liabilities, paying necessary taxes, and distribution of property to heirs. It also addresses the property of those who have died without a will and arranges for property to be divided according to California law. Under either process, a smaller estate can often be handled simply and relatively quickly.
