Checking The Probate: Why It Is Not As Uncomfortable A Process As It Sounds

When someone passes away and has had the mindset to set up probate for his/her estate in advance to his/her death, there is public record of this. In fact, there has to be public record of it because the reason for probate is to make creditors and debt collectors aware of the fact that a borrower has passed away and that funds from the estate are about to be disbursed. If someone owes you money and passes away, you are entitled to collect on that debt from that person's estate.
