In this video our Champaign County probate litigation attorneys describe probate as a court case in which the court oversees the executor or administrator as they distribute the assets of a deceased individual to creditors and beneficiaries.  The probate process occurs after a person has died and is handled by an executor of the deceased person.  The executor is usually the person that the deceased named in his or her will to be responsible for managing his or her estate.  In the absence of a will, the person with this responsibility is referred to as the administrator.  The overall goal of probate is to clarify who gets certain assets of a deceased person and to ensure that debt is paid off.
