The person who intends to apply for a Grant must advertise their intention to do so for a period of fourteen days. At the end of this fourteen day period, an application for a Grant can then be submitted to the Probate Office of the Supreme Court.
If the Probate Office is satisfied with the application, a Grant may be issued to the applicant as early as one week after the application has been made. If the Probate Office is not satisfied with the application, a requisition will be sent to the applicant with further requirements required to satisfy the Probate Office. Once the Probate Office is satisfied, then a Grant will be issued.
