Probate of will
A probate is an instrument which validates the will. A probate is always issued by a Court of competent jurisdiction. A probate is only granted to the executor or beneficiary who is appointed by the will. In order to get the probate, an application has to be made before the Court along with the copy of the will and other necessary documents which may be required by the Court. Once the application is made and accepted, the Court will notify the next of kin of the deceased to raise any objections, if any. If there arise objections, the Court will hear them and settle them. Once the Court is satisfied with the validity of the will, the Court will issue the probate and validate the will of the deceased so that it can be executed.
