The probate process is mystifying to some people; however, it doesn't have to be. In the simplest of terms, probate is meant to transfer the assets of the decedent to the rightful heirs. This is done based on the estate plan of the person. If the person doesn't have one, the case will follow the intestate guidelines of the state.

When you create an estate plan, you need to write a will. This document might seem old-fashioned, but it still plays an important role in the estate. Without one, the state will determine who gets your assets based on intestate succession laws, which outline exactly what will happen based on a person's relationship to you.
