The Probate Process
The probate court must approve the estate of a deceased individual, giving the executor power over everything named in the estate. The process of getting the estate approved is probate. In the probate process, a lawyer must submit addresses, prove the Will in Solemn Form, expenses and liability to the court; request an order for land (if applicable) to be changed; file tax returns; pay out the estate; and do a final tax return.
When you work with our Vancouver probate lawyers, we will immediately send a comprehensive letter to you that fully address the probate process and explains the terms of providing a retainer. Our firm will help you through every step involved in the probate process, working to minimize complications and challenges.
