We have been advising our clients in the area of deceased estates for over 40 years. We can assist you:
- to apply for a grant of probate (where the deceased leaves a Will) or letters of administration (where there is no Will);
- with the administration of the estate pursuant to the deceased’s Will or the laws of intestacy. This may involve notifying banks, share registries and superannuation funds to arrange for the transfer of moneys or payment of death benefits, transferring real estate to the executors or beneficiaries, and distributing the estate; and
- if you wish to contest or challenge a Will/estate in circumstances where proper provision has not been made for you. One of the most common types of cases we handle is where an aggrieved family member issues proceedings seeking further or better provision from a deceased estate.
