Probate is the legal process to distribute assets after death. There are several types of probate. If everything is being transferred to a surviving spouse, no probate is needed. In many situations, only a few assets need to be distributed to family members. Your estate may qualify for summary or family administration. Not all estates need a complete, or formal administration. Formal Administration is required when the assets are above a certain value, when there are different beneficiaries and in other circumstances.
