Thibeault Estate: Settlement of Peter Kelly Accounts

Posted in: News

Regulations under the Probate Act of Nova Scotia allow persons interested in an estate with issues to be resolved to submit those issues to a mediator. The regulations mandate that the mediation process and its outcome be kept confidential.

Mr. Peter Kelly, former personal representative of the Estate of Mary Thibeault, and Elizabeth Herritt, successor personal representative, and their counsel, with the consent of all of the heirs of the Estate, agreed to participate in mediation.

Mediation was successful and the Probate Court was so advised.

The Court has now issued an Order confirming approval of Mr. Kelly’s accounts and his discharge as personal representative. The terms of the settlement are confidential. The personal representatives, their counsel, and the heirs are not at liberty to disclose any of the terms of settlement.
