What is probate?

Probate is when you prove that a will is valid and are legally recognized as the executor of an estate. It is often a necessary step before distributing the assets of the deceased. 

What if there is no will?

If the deceased did not leave a will, or if their will did not name an executor, you would have to obtain a grant of administration instead of a grant of probate. Rather than an executor, you would be the estate’s administrator.

Why use our services?

Seeking a grant of probate or administration can be a time consuming, complicated process. We at Guardian Law are familiar with the probate process and would be happy to help.

Additionally, should you use a lawyer to assist with probate, our costs are likely reasonable expenses that can be charged to the estate, subject to the approval of the beneficiaries or the court.
