  • Click Generate form
  • You will now see the PA1A/P form largely pre-populated with information you have already added to your case on the platform

💡 White fields are not editable. This is because they are pre-populated with information entered into your case on the platform 

To edit information in white fields you must go to where you originally entered the data, update the information and save. When you re-open your PA1 form the information will have automatically updated. For example, if you have misspelt the deceased's name, go back to your Estate overview, click into the deceased's details, update the name with the correct spelling and click Save. Go back and open your form to see the correct spelling displayed

    💡 Grey fields are editable

    • To edit information in grey fields simply update the information on the form as necessary. Be sure to save as you go by clicking Save & close
    • You have the option to Save & close, Cancel & close, Download (to use as a reference when completing the PA1 form online via HMCTS) or Print (for sending to a client for signature)
