What is Probate vs. Administration?

You may see the terms Testate and Intestate.  Testate means a person died without a Will. Intestate means a person died without a Will.

It cost less to probate (file with the Court with a Will) than it does to open an Estate in court for an Intestate (died without a Will). The proceeding without a Will is called Administration as opposed to Probate.
