Important forms notice

Members of the Law Society of Alberta filing grant applications for probate are required to use the Surrogate Digital Service (SDS).

Members of the Law Society filing grant applications other than probate must include a GA1 Submission Eligibility Form (PDF, 35 KB) with each application indicating why it is not eligible to be processed through the SDS.

Self-represented applicants are not required to use this form.

These fillable forms are for legal professionals and people who are representing themselves under the Surrogate Rules in the Court of King's Bench dealing with matters of:

  • probate
  • administration of a deceased’s estate
  • trusteeship of minor’s property
