The probate process, or just probate, is essentially the procedure that takes place when you pass away. Specifically, it starts when your Will has been opened to when your executor has completely distributed your property. The probate process typically involves a probate court. It could last anything from six months to three years. This depends on the amount and value of the assets present in the Will.
