DIY probate kit for Newfoundland and Labrador now available
Posted by Lynne Butler
The kit comes with a glossy, coil-bound book of 56 pages as well as a flash drive. The flash drive contains all of the forms you will need to apply for probate so that you can download them for instant use. The book contains instructions for choosing which forms you need, completing them properly, marking the back of the will, getting the documents signed and sworn, and filing them at the court. It even contains a schedule of probate fees, examples of how documents should look, and a checklist to check off the forms as you complete them.
Not everybody in Newfoundland and Labrador has access to a wills and estates lawyer, or necessarily wants to hire a lawyer to help with a simple estate. This kit is for you. To my knowledge, it's the only kit out there that contains not just the forms, but detailed instructions for using them. Click here to learn more or to purchase a copy. You can also get a copy by calling our office at 709-221-5511. The cost of the kit is $40 + HST. As always, feeback is welcome.
