When you probate an estate, you prove by legal process that a will has been validly made and executed. This may sound complicated, but it isn't. It is actually possible for you, the layperson, to probate a simple estate.
Furthermore, you can save thousands of dollars in legal fees. This is no exaggeration, as a lawyer will normally charge 2 percent of the gross value of an estate in probate fees. This means that for a $100,000 estate, you would be charged $2,000.
Learn what you should do after a death; the powers and duties of executors and administrators; how estates are divided if there is no will; what to do about out-of-province assets; what forms are necessary and how to complete them properly; how to file for probate without a lawyer; and much more.
All the information you need is included in this kit.
