A Grant of Probate is a legal document that authorises an executor to manage the deceased estate per their wishes as set out in the will. Probate involves proving and registering in the Supreme Court of NSW the last valid will of a deceased person. 

Application for a Grant of Probate should be made within six months from the date of death of the deceased. The court will require the deceased original will to be filed with the probate application. If the original will is lost, probate can be granted on a true copy of the last will, and the court may accept an informal will if it is satisfied that the informal will constitutes the deceased’s last will.

Contacting Our Litigation Lawyer in Sydney

The NSW law recognises that everyone has a right to choose who they want to inherit their assets from. However, a will can be contested if it does not accurately reflect the will-maker’s intentions, if there is a question about the will’s validity, or if someone feels they need to be more adequately provided for in the will. Our litigation lawyer in Sydney can assist you in contesting a will, determine whether you are eligible to do so, and if you are an executor defending a will.

The laws concerning probate and the distribution of deceased assets are complex. This is why working with a professional probate lawyer, such as Heckenberg Lawyers, is advisable. Our lawyers don’t take your confidence in them for granted. We give you high-quality and honest legal advice. We work hard to earn your trust by providing efficient, cost-effective services that put your interests first. Let us help you with any legal advice or assistance you need.
