Probate applications are significantly delayed by requisitions (questions) raised by the Court. A requisition is issued if there is an issue with the Probate application that needs to be addressed. Requisitions must usually be answered on affidavit evidence and may often require legal advice to understand and adequately respond to.
Once the affidavit answering the requisition is filed with the Court, it takes up to 20 business days for it to be reviewed. If insufficient, the Court will raise further questions until it is satisfied with the response. Probate will not be granted until a requisition has been answered sufficiently. Failure to seek an extension of time to respond to a requisition may result in your application being dismissed.
