My mom recently passed away. Does her estate automatically go through probate?

Video Transcription:

When a person passes, their estate does not automatically go through probate. A personal representative needs to be appointed by the court. That person is either named in a will or applies under the law of Maryland. Once that person is appointed, they need to do specific things such as file and inventory and accountings with the court in order to make a final distribution at some point of the assets of the decedent.
