An application for probate is filed with the appropriate court.
A court hearing is scheduled to admit the Will to probate and appoint an executor.
Letters Testamentary are issued.
The executor gathers estate’s assets which are inventoried; and appraised if necessary.
Creditor claims are presented, and valid claims are paid by the executor from assets in the estate.
All relevant tax filings are made.
Distribution is made of remaining estate assets according to the dictates of the Will.
