What Is Estate Administration? A probate estate is a legal proceeding provided for by Ohio law to determine the assets of a deceased person who was an Ohio resident at the time of death, the value of those assets, and the distribution of those assets to the persons entitled to them by law. A probate estate is necessary to protect and conserve the assets of the decedent for the heirs, creditors, and other persons interested in the estate. The probate estate will provide for the payment of outstanding debts, the payment of taxes, and the distribution of the remaining assets to the persons entitled to receive them under the decedent's will or by law. This process is known as the administration of a decedent's estate.
