For probate purposes, when you plan your estate with Red Booth Law, you will always receive the comfort of knowing we explore every single avenue for you to purposely have a very small estate at the date of your death. Our reason for this is straightforward, by having your estate pay less in taxes and probate, we make sure your loved ones receive even more of your hard-earned money.
Even when other professionals didn’t spend the necessary time to determine if every angle and the tiniest of nuances were satisfied and considered, at Red Booth Law, before appropriately completing your probate application and submitting it to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to have you appointed as the Estate Trustee, we will thoroughly examine all necessary asset instruments and determine where further savings can be found and have them prevented from being claimed by the government.
Being an estates boutique and an estate lawyer, we are very familiar with all the duties involved of being an Estate Trustee. Our clients, on the other hand, are most likely experiencing these highly detailed and extremely important responsibilities for the very first time and probate is more than likely a foreign word to them. Should you be the named Executor within the deceased’s Will or the personal representative, where the deceased died without a Will (also known as 'intestate'), we’ve compiled 10 Essential Duties for Executors & Estate Trustees and 6 Needed Documents for Probate to provide a helpful start through your journey.
