Probate & Estate Administration
First and foremost, grieving is where your body and mind starts the process of recovering. Our recommendation is to continue to focus on you, allow yourself to grieve and keep surrounding yourself around all those continuing to support you through this moment.
Due to the fact probate requires an intensive judicial process, Red Booth Law fully understands the need for perfection as there is absolutely no room for even the slightest bit of error. The attention our law firm puts into analyzing every one of the deceased’s records and financial statements is just the tip of the iceberg in our approach to your probate matter.
As an Estate Trustee, numerous tasks are involved and all duties and responsibilities of an Estate Trustee shall be performed. Where you believe the Estate Trustee failed to collect and secure all of the estate assets, is not paying creditors, rendering all accounts, paying all the appropriate beneficiaries, claiming too much in compensation or taking too long to administer an estate, you have legal rights to challenge the conduct of the Estate Trustee and can make a claim to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.
Being the most commonly recognizable form of Estate Litigation, we also handle matters related to contesting the validity of a Will (or Trust or Powers of Attorney). Where you believe the testator was lacking the necessary mental capacity, wasn’t provided with the knowledge and approval of the contents within their testamentary documents, or there may have been a presence of undue influence or fraud involved, we highly recommend you contact Red Booth Law and make a claim for the possibility to change the distribution of the testator's assets or even have the Will set aside as if it never existed.
REAL ESTATE CLOSINGS
