Although we typically think of probate as the process by which a decedent’s estate assets are passed down to heirs of the estate, probate also serves additional purposes, such as:
1. Identifying and valuing the estate assets
2. Authenticating the decedent’s Last Will and Testament
3. Litigating any challenges to the Will or the estate
4. Notifying creditors of the estate and allowing them to file claims
5. Reviewing and approving or denying claims
6. Managing and selling estate assets when necessary
7. Calculating and paying gift and estate taxes
