What is the final stage of probate?

The final stage of probate is when the executor of the estate distributes the assets to the beneficiaries. This may include distributing cash, property, or other assets according to the instructions of the will.

The executor may also have to pay debts and taxes on behalf of the estate before distributing the assets. After the distribution is complete, either according to the will, or after the estate has been passed to the next of kin, the estate is considered closed.
