By-Your-Side Probate Services - Alberta's #1 Probate Coach

I have so appreciated Carolyn’s expertise as I have worked through the probate process with my mother’s estate.  

She helped me understand how to have the appropriate forms filled out, including out of town and out of province considerations, and I know this helped the application for Grant of Probate go through quickly.  

I filed the application on February 12 and picked up the grant on April 26.  Having the services of the Commissioner for Oaths available as part of the process also took care of several additional steps that I would have needed to take if they were not connected to Carolyn’s services.  

I would recommend By-Your-Side Probate Services to everyone!  Thank you Carolyn.
