I had Hayley Kennedy do my divorce and property settlement which included some complicated parenting orders. Hayley was thorough, caring and explained things really well during this difficult time . I appreciated her knowledge and advice that really helped me sort out issues I didn’t even know I should - to avoid problems down the track. Great lawyer!

thumb probate lawyerOne important issue to which Executors must consider when dealing with a deceased estate is to whether a Grant of Probate is required. A Grant of Probate is a legal document that authorises an executor to manage the estate of the deceased persons in accordance with their Will. It is not mandatory for all circumstances that a grant is required in order to administer an Estate. In most cases, the size of the estate and ownership of assets such as real property can determine whether a grant is required or not.

The process of obtaining probate is quite involved and can easily become complicated if any person contests the Will. Whether the validity of the will is in question, or a beneficiary (or would be beneficiary) disputes the amount left to them, both give rise to a host of potential complications. As contestation of Wills becomes more and more commonplace in this day and age, it is recommended that a lawyer always prepares the application for probate.

If you are not sure whether Probate is required or not it is prudent to receive legal advice. Forge Legal is best placed with 30 years of continuous experience to provide you with prompt advice and guidance in relation to such matters. We also offer fixed fee probate costs so that your legal costs don’t get out of control.
