Probates & Deceased Estates

We understand what a difficult time dealing with a deceased estate can be, which is why we do everything we can to assist executors to perform their duties as efficiently and effectively as possible.

We assist our clients by:

  • Interpreting the Will of the deceased in accordance with the estate laws;
  • Advising executors and trustees in regard to their duties and rights;
  • Informing government bodies including Centrelink and Veterans Affairs;
  • Applying for Probate of the Will in the Supreme Court;
  • Dealing with intestacy (where there is no Will);
  • Applying for Letters of Administration (if the Will is deemed invalid or is absent);
  • Identifying estate assets and liabilities of the Estate;
  • Obtaining valuations of estate property;
  • Collecting estate financial assets including superannuation, bank funds, shares, outstanding loans, and insurance payouts;
  • Selling or transferring estate property including estate auctions;
  • Paying estate debts including mortgages, funeral costs, and testamentary expenses; and
  • Contesting wills and defending estate litigation in the Supreme Court.
