What is Probate in CT?

In simple terms, probate is a legal process that is necessary to evaluate the validity and applicability of a person’s last will and testament at the time of their passing, or to determine how a decedent’s assets are to be distributed in the event that they did not create a will during their lifetime. An executor or administrator is usually named in a person’s will or appointed by the courts to assume control of the decedent’s estate and handle a number of different tasks on behalf of the deceased, including collecting and appraising assets, paying the decedent’s final debts, and overseeing asset distribution to the appropriate beneficiaries.
