LawBiz recommends seeking the advice of an experienced solicitor in any matters that relate to estate and succession planning or estate administration. We understand that such matters are both sensitive and specific to the personal circumstances of each client. We work with you and to achieve your particular goals or meet your particular needs quickly and efficiently.
We can help you apply to the Supreme Court of NSW for Probate in instances where there is a valid Will and you have been nominated as Executor of that Will. The Supreme Court can then grant probate which authorises you to distribute the estate in accordance with the provisions of the Will.
Letters of Administration
In the somewhat complicated event that a valid Will has not been left, we can assist you with applying for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court of NSW. In these circumstances, there is legislation that details how an estate may be distributed and by whom. The Supreme Court can appoint an Administrator to distribute the estate.
Claims Against Estates
If you expected to be a beneficiary of a Will but have not been provided for, you may be able to make a claim against the distribution of any estate, provided you can clearly set out reasons as to why you should be considered a beneficiary of the deceased estate.
Wills and Powers of Attorney
We always recommend keeping your estate planning documents up to date as it makes distributing your estate far easier on your beneficiaries in what is already a stressful and difficult time.
