Suppose your loved one arranged for a Will before their passing. In that case, their Executor may need to probate the Will before they can manage and distribute the deceased’s assets among the beneficiaries. In Alberta, the probate process verifies that a Will is authentic and enforceable.
If your loved family member or friend dies without a Will, this means that they passed intestate. Likely, you will need to become a Personal Representative of the estate to receive a Grant of Administration. Only then will the Personal Representative have the authority to manage the deceased’s assets and distribute the estate among its beneficiaries.
