The process of advertising for creditors has been stuck in the past. While other parts of the legal industry move forward, estate law offices have been forced to advertise for creditors in newspapers that only reach a limited geographic area at costs that can quickly run into the thousands of dollars. Many estate administrators find themselves asking a difficult question: does it make sense to spend thousands of dollars of the estate’s money to advertise for creditors that I don’t believe exist or do I save them the cost and risk exposing myself to potential liability? Thankfully, there is now a modern, court-approved approach that makes this dilemma a thing of the past for Ontario estate administrators.
At Do Process, we are always looking for new innovative solutions to help legal professionals overcome challenges and streamline their practice. We’re excited to have partnered with an organization that is helping estate administrators reduce their costs, serve clients more effectively, and limit their administrative risk. Our newest partner, NoticeConnect®, offers a simple, cost effective, and court-approved approach to posting legal notices and reducing both legal liability as well as estate trustee liability in Ontario.
