Who oversees the probate process?

The probate process is overseen by a probate court. The court is responsible for supervising the administration of the deceased person’s estate and ensuring that the deceased person’s debts are paid and their assets are distributed to their heirs or beneficiaries according to the law. The court also has the power to resolve any disputes that may arise during the probate process, such as disputes among beneficiaries or challenges to the validity of the deceased person’s will. The probate court judge is responsible for making all final decisions related to the probate case. Additionally, the court may appoint a personal representative or executor to manage the deceased person’s estate during the probate process. The personal representative or executor is responsible for gathering the deceased person’s assets, paying any debts or taxes owed, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries or heirs.
