Our Services In Probate

Help from our Probate Lawyer

Hiring a probate lawyer can make all the difference in estate planning. Our Halifax probate lawyer, serving all Nova Scotia, can handle all responsibilities with respect to managing your estate. It is important to get the advice and support of a probate lawyer to avoid probate delays and distribution of the assets to loved ones.

Without a will, a court application must be made to appoint an administrator who will distribute your assets and pay your debts. This process can cost you an additional $2,500 in legal fees. In Nova Scotia, after death, a Will sometimes needs to be submitted to probate court to prove it is the only good and valid Will in existence. Financial institutions like banks or investment companies typically require legal recognition of the Will from the probate registry before they will release funds to the executor/personal representative named in the Will. Let our probate lawyer, Daniel, help guide you through the process.
