Since 2008: By-Your-Side Probate Services is pleased to state a 100% success rate in receiving certified grants from the Justice of the Court for the executors.
1. Phase I - Application for Grant of Administration
Request by banks, land titles and other institutions when:
- No Executor named in the will.
- No Will was made.
- Will cannot be found, nor copies of the same.
2. Phase I - Application of Grant of Probate
In many cases Will need to be validated by a Justice of the Court, if:
- Requested by Banks
- Requested by Land Titles
- Requested by other Institutions
- Requested by Vehicle Registry
3. Phase I - Non-grant Application (NGA)
Required for the beneficiaries when executors are not required to file at the court. The executor is expected to provide the beneficiaries a copy of the Non-Grant Application, instead. We can prepare the Non-Grant Application to assist the executor with this fiduciary duty.
Phase II - Beneficiary Release Forms
Required for the beneficiaries when there is more than one beneficiary.
The court is expecting the executor to provide to the beneficiaries, releases. We can provide these forms too.
Phase III - Application for resealing a grant:
Inquire to find out if this applies to your estate work.

Former Clients' Testimonials
"Carolyn provides a very much needed service, by assisting with this process that would normally prove to be intimidating and daunting for most people, especially during such stressful times, and when so many other things require the executor’s attention as well. As stated, she helps demystify the entire probate and guides you gently through each step until you are ready to submit. It actually felt empowering. Once started, you learn there is nothing to feel intimidated or anxious about...and I imagine you don't need a lawyer to complete this task, nor do you need to pay their exorbitant fees for something most people are capable of doing themselves, especially with Probate Coach's help! You are patiently walked through each step, one at a time, so nothing feels overwhelming.
Probate was granted to me within 15 business days, which was amazing. I can't thank Carolyn enough for providing this service, at a fraction of the lawyer's quoted cost!" P.C.
"We are grateful to have found Caroly to assist us when my mom passed away. Having a probate coach made the whole process of handling my mom's will simpler for us, without the need to go through a costly attorney. Her knowledge and experience guided us through each step and we were relieved to get it all taken care of, with someone personable to call whenever we needed help. It was convenient to work with Carolyn through phone and Email communication, without needing to travel appointments. Thank you, for your great assistance and support." A.B
"I was reeling with grief and Carolyn very confidently guided me through each step of the probate. Every question I had was answered quickly and clearly. I was able to probate the will with no difficulty and she ensured that every step was done correctly.
As a small business owner, I am very aware of customer service and word of mouth advertising. I can confidently recommend Carolyn to anyone who is an executor. This is not a job to do on your own.
I cannot measure my gratitude for her assistance. It made what was one of the worst years of my life so much less stressful." M.K.
