A will is generally not considered valid until it is entered into probate by the probate judge. A will may need to be entered into probate if there are assets that are in the decedent’s individual name that need to pass through the terms of the will to go to the intended beneficiaries. If there are no assets in the decedent’s individual name, then a probate may not be necessary, and the will might not need to be entered into probate court.
