Questions and Answers About Probate - English and Spanish (Espanol)

Probate is the procedure for transferring title of a deceased person's property to the proper survivors. If the person did not have a will, the laws of intestate succession set out who will inherit. If there is a valid will, the estate still must be probated, but it is distributed according to the will. Probate also arranges for payment of all debts and taxes.

Spanish Translation: La Convalidación es el proceso para transferir el título de la propiedad de una persona difunta a los sobrevivientes apropiados. Si la persona no tiene un testamento, las leyes de sucesión intestado dictan quien heredará. Si hay un testamento válido, la sucesión aún tiene que ser autenticada, pero es distribuida según el testamento. La convalidación hace arreglos para el pago de todas las deudas e impuestos.
