Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a lawyer for the estate to probate the will?

Legally, no, you do not need a lawyer to do the probate application, though it's actually really hard to fill it out without an experienced professional. That's one of the things that ClearEstate helps executors with.

Our experienced estate professionals will support you through the estate settlement process and prepare your probate application. If the circumstances require, we may have an estate attorney review the application, before submitting it.

What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process of proving that a will is the Last Will and Testament of a deceased person. This process also confirms the appointment of an Executor - the person legally responsible for settling the estate.

Does ClearEstate help with filing probate to the court?

Yes - we assist you with filing the probate forms in your name, and if additional petitions are required we can also support you through our professionals

How do we ensure that we get independant legal advice?

We are not a law firm but we do work with a network of licensed legal professionals across Canada that help us draft wills and POAs. They will be outsourced by CE to draft the required documentation. Should you need independent legal advice for a specific matter, we can put you in touch with one of these legal professionals. Please note that our liability for any third party advice is limited as per our Terms of Use.

What happens during a free consultation?

We offer a thirty minute free consultation with our estate experts. They will review your situation and make suggestions for the best path forward. It is a free consultation so you can choose to proceed with our services afterwards if you believe they are a good value or you can take the advice/information and go forward on your own

How is ClearEstate different than my lawyer?

Through our platform and our team of professionals, we are able to lessen the administration hours and therefore save the estate from large settlement costs (incl legal fees). We also help you navigate the estate settlement process from beginning to end.

What does the automated fill in process consist of?

Using the information you provide, ClearEstate can automatically fill the petition for probate and ancillary documents. We can also prepare the required notification to the government agencies.

Do I need prior knowledge in estate settlement?

At ClearEstate we understand that a vast amount of people are going through this experience for the first time. Thus, it is not necessary for you to have prior experience because we created our services based on the fact that most people are inexperienced in Estate Settlements.

What languages do we serve in?

We serve in English and French

What exactly is an estate specialist and what qualifications do they have ?

We have a team of estate administrators, lawyers and accountants to handle all of your needs, as well as developers who have built a series of tools to support estate settlement.
