Probate & Estate Administration is a general term which describes the area of law dealing with the distribution of an individual's assets and settlement of their liabilities after death. When a person dies, a new legal entity, the Estate, is created. The Estate becomes the owner of the decedent's assets and liabilities. Estates must go through some form of legal process to legally transfer the Estate's assets to the beneficiaries of the Estate. In some cases, this process is called probate. In Michigan, the administration of estates in probate is handled by the probate court system. Individuals whose estates are held in a trust prior to their death are administered by the trustee of the trust, generally outside the scope of the court system.
