How Probate Works

Probate is the process of proving and registering in the Supreme Court the last Will of a deceased person. When a person dies, somebody has to deal with their estate. It is usually the executor of their Will who administers the estate and handles the disposal of their assets and debts.

If a family member passes without a Will then you can apply to the Supreme Court for Letters of Administration this enables you to administer and distribute the estate similar to an executor and the estate is distributed in accordance with a strict legislative list.

How We Can Help

This is a highly emotional and sensitive time. We assist you or the executor by preparing all the forms and gathering all the information to obtain a grant of probate, which is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person. The next part of the process is resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will or in accordance with the law. We handle this entire process for you and your family. Should there be a dispute our aim is to negotiate and attempt to settle that dispute at the earliest possible point in time as all litigation is expensive, time consuming, stressful and something to be avoided if possible.
