In the context of Probate, the term "notice" refers to formal written communications or notifications sent to relevant parties to inform them about the Administration of a deceased person's Estate.

They are an important part of the legal procedures during probate and ensure transparency, fairness, and legal compliance.

Notices inform Interested Parties, such as Beneficiaries, Heirs, Creditors, and others with a stake in the deceased's estate, about key events, hearings, deadlines, and actions taken.

Legally they have the right to be informed of relevant proceedings and actions so they can protect their interests and participate in the process as needed.

During probate, there may be several types of notices required:

Notice of Petition for Probate: When a Last Will and Testament is submitted to Probate Court to be proven and validated, interested parties and potential beneficiaries are typically notified through a formal notice in a newspaper or other online publication. This gives them an opportunity to Contest the validity of the will if they have concerns.

Notice of Appointment of Executor or Administrator: Once an Executor or Administrator is appointed by the court, interested parties are informed of this appointment. This notice provides information about who is responsible for managing the estate's affairs.

Notice to Creditors: A notice to creditors informs potential creditors of the deceased's estate that they have a limited period of time to submit their claims for Debts owed by the deceased. This notice ensures that debts are properly addressed during the probate process.

Notice of Inventory and Appraisal: When the executor or administrator compiles an Inventory of the deceased person's assets and their appraised values, interested parties may receive a notice that provides details about the estate's assets.

Notice of Proposed Actions: If the executor or administrator plans to take certain actions, such as selling estate property or settling claims, interested parties may be notified in advance to give them an opportunity to raise objections if necessary.

Notice of Final Distribution: Once the estate's debts, taxes, and expenses have been settled, a notice of final distribution informs beneficiaries about how the remaining assets will be distributed to them.
