Why is probate of a will is necessary?The probate of a will is necessary because of the following reasons:

  1. Verification of Authenticity: This prevents fraudulent or forged documents from being accepted as valid. The Probate process ensures that the will presented is the genuine last will and testament of the deceased individual.
  2. Legal Recognition: Probate is the legal process by which a court confirms the validity of the will and grants authority to the executor named in the will to administer the estate according to its terms.
  3. Executor’s Authority: It gives legal authority to the executor to act on behalf of the deceased’s estate, including managing and distributing assets, paying debts, and fulfilling other responsibilities outlined in the will.
  4. Creditors Notification: During probate, creditors are notified of the death and given an opportunity to make claims against the estate. This ensures that the deceased’s debts are settled properly before distributing assets to beneficiaries.
  5. Clear Distribution of Assets: Probate helps in avoiding disputes among family members and ensures the deceased’s wishes are honored. It provides a clear legal process for distributing the deceased’s assets to beneficiaries according to the instructions laid out in the will.
  6. Legal Protection: Probate provides legal protection to all parties involved—executors, beneficiaries, and creditors—by ensuring that the estate is settled in accordance with the law and under court supervision if necessary.
