Estate Administration

Our firm can also assist you and your family with Estate Administration. This may be required upon the death or incapacity of a loved one. The steps involved depend upon a number of factors including the size and complexity of the estate and how your loved one documented his or her affairs. If a person dies with a valid Will, then the named executor can apply for a Grant of Probate. If a person dies without a Will or if the named executor has also died or is unable or unwilling to act as executor, then another person can apply for a Grant of Administration.

In June 2022, the estate administration process in Alberta changed considerably. For many estate administration matters, these changes should result in lower legal fees. Click here for more details of the costs for estate administration matters.
