  • Estate Administration

    Estate administration is the process of transferring assets out of the deceased’s name, paying debts, attending to final tax returns and distributing the assets of the estate to the beneficiaries named in the Will. The Executor of the Will is responsible for the estate administration

    Although you may think that preparing a formal Will is a costly exercise, not having a Will can be much more costly for your loved ones when they come to administering your estate. A Will ensures that your loved ones do not need to spend unnecessary additional funds in the process of the estate administration.

  • Probate

    Probate is the court’s official recognition that a Will is legally valid. When a grant of probate is given this provides the Executor of your Will with authority to administer your estate and allocate estate assets. In some circumstances a grant of probate may not be required, for example, if the value of the assets is small. An application for a grant of probate is usually filed with the Supreme Court in the respective state or territory where most assets are held.
