Probate is the process of settling the estate of a person who has passed away. This process involves, among other things, the validation of the will (if one is available), the distribution of the estate’s assets and the settlement of the estate’s debts.
There are two types of estates that go through probate: testate, where the person has left a valid will; and intestate, where the person has died without a will or no will could be found. In cases where there is a will, the property will be divided according to the contents of the will. If there is no will, the property will be divided according to Arkansas statute.
