A specific process must be followed when an individual leaves a will containing a sizable estate. First the will must be proven valid, and then the terms of the will are administered. This process is called probate. As part of probate administration, a petition is filed with the court to approve the will and either appoints the executor named, or assign an executor if none was named.
