11. What happens if there is a will?

Usually, the decedent’s will names an individual to be the executor of their estate. After the probate court appoints an individual as the executor of the decedent’s estate, the executor will be responsible for collecting and distributing the decedent’s assets. An executor has full authority over the estate can take actions without first obtaining permission from the probate court.
