What Is Probate?

In Ohio, probate may apply when a person passes away with or without a Last Will and Testament. A will typically dictates how a person would like property and assets to be distributed upon his or her passing. It may include specific instructions for certain items, may divide assets among family members, friends, or charities, and may also specify custody for minor children. If a person dies without a will, his or her property will be divided based on Ohio intestacy law.

During probate, the following will be carried out:

  • The person’s property will be gathered and documented;
  • The person’s debts will be paid; and
  • Remaining assets will be distributed according to the person’s will, or in accordance with intestacy laws.
