Probate and administration

In Australia, a will can only be enforced upon completion of probate. If there is no will, or there are other complications, application for administration of estate may be needed.

Applying for probate can often be a source of conflict for family members of the deceased. For example, the executor of the will could be awfully slow in making the necessary inquiries; the original will could be lost; and the intention of the deceased could be disputed. If any of the above happened to you, rest assured we can help you attain the outcome you deserve.

If probate was granted, distributing the assets can be an exhausting procedure. The steps are tedious and technical given the amount of parties (banks, accountants, lawyers) involved. With over ten years of experience in probate and administration matters, we are confident with distributing the deceased’s assets quickly and smoothly.

We offer probate kits in most Australian jurisdictions so that you can quickly and easily fill out all the necessary court documents. The links to these probate kits can be found below:
