Probate

Probate is the legal and court process whereby the property of a deceased person is transferred to their heirs.  This requires filing a petition with Clerk of the Court.  This can be a lengthy process because the courts give creditors of the decedent time to file their claims against the estate.
 
Estates of value in excess of $100,000 need to go through probate.
