an order of court appointing a person to administer the estate of a deceased person. Where a person dies leaving a will that makes an effective appointment of executors, the executors' title to deal with the deceased's estate is completed by the issue of a grant of probate. This is in fact and in law (like a grant of LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION) an order of the High Court. Probate maybe either in common form (where the probity of the will is not in dispute), issued by one of the Probate Registries, or where the will is disputed in solemn form. Contentious business is dealt with in the Chancery Division; non-contentious business is assigned to the Family Division.
