Government forms are not typically updated often, though when they are, it often happens rather quietly.

Double check that you have both the correct form name and the correct form ID. Some Yukon probate forms can look remarkably similar, so it’s best to double, even triple-check that you’re using the right one! Keep in mind that not all States have a standardized Form ID system for their probate forms.

Some States and situations require particular forms to be notarized. If you have been instructed to get the document notarized or see it in writing on the document, then make sure to hire a local notary. There are max notary fees in the United States that are defined and set by local law. Take a look at our full guide to notary fees to make sure you aren’t overpaying or getting ripped off.
This is most often the local probate court where the decedent (person who passed away) is domiciled (permanently resides) or the institution involved with this particular form (e.g. a bank). Some offices allow you to submit forms online, other’s don’t, and we while we generally recommend going in-person to expedite the process, sometimes that simply isn’t an option.
It’s also a generally good idea to establish a positive working relationship with any probate clerk (unfortunately there’s enough people & process out there making things more difficult and unnecessarily confusing for them), so a best practice is to simply ask the probate clerk proactively exactly how and where they’d prefer you to submit all forms.

Different probate forms or processes can require different deadlines or response times for completing the appropriate form.
While some steps in the process are bound to specific deadlines (like petitioning for probate, having to submit an inventory of assets, or filing applicable notices to creditors and beneficiaries), many probate forms or processes are not tied to a specific deadline since the scope of work can vary based on situational factors or requirements involved.
Either way, there are a bunch of practical reasons why personal representatives should work to complete each step as thoroughly and quickly as possible when completing probate in Yukon.
The sooner you begin, the faster Yukon can allow heirs and beneficiaries to get their share of assets subject to probate. Acting promptly can also decrease the costs & overall mental fatigue through an otherwise burdensome process.
Helpful Context: What’s the Difference Between Probate and Non-Probate Assets?
In general, creditors of an estate usually have around 3-6 months from the time you file notice to creditors to file any claims for debt against the deceased’s assets. If they don’t, then that debt is forfeited (and more importantly, the executor won’t be held personally responsible). So doing this sooner means you have a better idea of who is owed what and ensures you won’t get a surprise collector months later.
Not filing a will within 30 days (on average) could mean that the probate process proceeds according to intestate laws (laws that govern what happens to someone's stuff without a will) or is subject to unnecessary supervision by the probate court. And if you aren't directly related to the deceased (a.k.a. next of kin), this could also mean you lose your inheritance.
It’s important to file any necessary state tax returns on behalf of the deceased or estate by the following tax season in Yukon. If you don’t, you could owe penalties and interest. This also includes any necessary federal tax returns such as Forms 1040, 1041, or even a Form 706 estate tax return.
If a house in the State of Yukon is left empty (or abandoned) for a while, insurance can get dicey. For example, if the house burns down and no one has been there for a year, an insurance company may get out of paying your claim.

What is probate, exactly?
Probate is the government’s way of making sure that when a person dies, the right stuff goes to the right people (including the taxes the government wants).
All of that stuff is collectively known as someone’s “estate”, and it’s the job of the executor or personal representative to fill out all the forms and complete all the required steps to formally dissolve the estate.

What does a YT executor or personal representative have to do?
An executor is named in someone’s will, and if the deceased didn’t have a will, then the spouse or other close family relative usually steps up to fulfill the role. If no one wants to do it, then a judge will appoint someone.
The executor is responsible for the complete management of the probate process, including major responsibilities such as:
Creating an inventory of all probate assets.
Filling out all necessary forms
Paying off all estate debts and taxes
Submitting reports to the court and beneficiaries as requested
And much more. This process often stretches longer than a year.

Attached is a Notice of Application for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration with respect to the estate of someone who has passed away. If there is a Will, it will be attached to the Notice. The person who has signed the Notice of Application is seeking to administer the estate by paying its debts and distributing its assets. If you wish to oppose the issue of a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration to the applicant named in the Notice, you must file a caveat with the Supreme Court of Yukon. A caveat form is available at the Court Registry or under &#x26;#x2018;Rules and Forms&#x26;#x2019; at www.yukoncourts.ca (Form 79). You must also file an affidavit (Form 59) that sets out the nature of your interest in the property of the deceased and states generally the grounds upon which the caveat is filed. After you file a caveat, you will be contacted by the Supreme Court of Yukon to set up a case management conference with a judge. It costs $70 to file a caveat with the Supreme Court of Yukon. You have 21 days to file a Caveat (Form 79). If you do not file a Caveat you will not hear anything further. You may or may not be entitled to claim against the estate itself for relief under the Family Property Support Act, RSY 2002, c. 83, and Dependent&#x26;#x2019;s Relief Act, RSY 2002, c. 56. If the estate grant issues to the intended applicant as a result of the application, the intended applicant must provide, if there is a will, to the beneficiaries, or, if there is no will, to the successors of the intestate deceased an accounting as to how the estate was administered and how the estate assets were distributed. You may consult with a lawyer considering your interest in the estate.
