A family member passes away, and they are involved in a lawsuit or their estate needs to sue someone. What are the steps they need to take to file such suit? The deceased person’s estate must be probated. Probate appoints a representative for the estate, called the executor or administrator. This person can then legally step into the shoes of the deceased person and file suit against another party.
