NB Probate FormsShow Table of Contents
There are a number of province-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.
In New Brunswick, the Probate Division of the Court of Queen's Bench handles probate and estate administration (find your probate court location).
You can check with your local court for the forms they might prefer, and below you will find some of the more common NB forms:
- Application for Letters Probate (Form 2A) - Get the probate process started
- Application for Letters of Administration (Form 2E) - Get the probate process started if no will
- Affidavit of Will (Form 2I) - Affirm the validity of the will
- Affidavit of Bond (Form 2Y) - Tell the court you obtained any required bond
- Application to Pass Accounts (Form 3M) - Ask the court to approve final estate accounts
- Affidavit Verifying Accounts (Form 3N) - Consider attaching EstateExec Final Accounting Report
See NB Probate Forms for a more complete list of forms that may be required in certain situations.
Small estates sometimes need only 1 specialized form or affidavit: see Small NB Estates.
If the estate needs to probate real estate in another province, you may be able to reseal the original grant of probate rather than start from scratch in the secondary province: see Ancillary Probate & Resealing.
