Non-contentious Probate was chosen as the pilot for online services in the NICTS Modernisation Portfolio and launched in June 2021. The Project has re-designed and modernised the non-contentious probate service to meet the changing needs and expectations of users. It avails of new technologies to create and deliver a digital product that will improve the service for all users.
In keeping with the spirit of “Digital First, not Digital Only” the paper-based process has also been modernised by developing user friendly application forms, with guidance notes and relevant information throughout, to guide the user though the process in easy-to-understand steps and language.
Further to the previous webinars held in April 2021 and February 2022, the aim of this session is to update members on additional functionality, namely caveats, and to continue to raise awareness of the portal. It will demonstrate how the portal works and members will be guided through the new application processes, including entering a caveat. There will also be Q & A time built into the session.
While this session will primarily be beneficial to non-contentious probate practitioners, the Probate Portal will be reviewed as a proof of concept for the development of other online court services and therefore will potentially be of interest to all members.
