Probate or probating a Will is the process by which a Will is submitted to the Court for validation. After a person dies, the document that is denominated as the person's Will must be officially authenticated by the Surrogate's Court. The probate process can be complicated and requires the filing of an array of documents in support of the Will. These can include kinship information and attesting witness affidavits.
