The Alberta probate forms are also required to apply for a Grant of Administration, if a will exists. The forms required for a Grant of Administration when there is no will are slightly different.
In addition, there are a number of other forms that may required in certain circumstances.
Completing Probate Court Forms
It is absolutely critical that you complete the probate forms correctly. Applications are returned if the forms do not contain all the information requested. This means that you must fill out every part of the form, putting in N/A or not applicable instead of leaving the line blank.
The primary reason people struggle with getting a Grant of Probate is that they have not filled out the forms properly. The court needs to ensure it has all the required information so it is very important to be thorough.
