Estate & Probate Matters
ESTATE & PROBATE MATTERS
We offer expert legal advice and support during a difficult time.
If a family member or friend dies and leaves a Will appointing you as Executor, we can help you navigate all that needs to be done. We can explain the process of applying for a Grant of Probate, assist you to collect the necessary information, and handle preparation of documentation and lodgement of the application for Grant of Probate in the Supreme Court of NSW on your behalf.
Should a family member die without a valid Will, you may need advice and assistance to deal with the estate and apply for Letters of Administration from the Supreme Court of NSW.
We can also advise you in circumstances where you may think you have been unfairly left out of a Will, or not received a fair share under the terms of a Will. We can advise you regarding a possible family provision claim and help you understand your options and likely outcomes. Our experienced team can also advise and act on your behalf to deal with family disputes arising from provisions contained in a Will. We can attend to the complete administration of the estate on your behalf, including collection of assets, payment of outstanding creditors, finalisation of outstanding tax issues and distribution of the estate.
