That is why we offer complete Calgary Probate Law services. The simple act of planning your estate in advance can alleviate the stress of your family having to handle the probate process after they pass away.
Probate is a term commonly used to describe the process of seeking court approval of a Will or, in the case of a person dying without a Will (known as dying “intestate”), appointment of an administrator to attend to the deceased’s estate. Legally, these processes are referred to as seeking a grant of probate or a grant of administration. These grants are often required by insurers and banking institutions and are necessary if the deceased owned real property. The estate’s Personal Representative (the Executor or court appointed Administrator) will apply to the court on behalf of the estate. There are a number of different grants that apply to estates and part of the Personal Representative’s duties is to ensure that the appropriate court application processes are followed, depending on the circumstances unique to a particular estate. A Personal Representative will often engage the services of an estate practitioner to advise them on the process and to prepare the court application necessary to obtain the appropriate grant for an estate.
