What is Probate?

When somebody passes away, somebody has to deal with their estate. Probate is the process of proving and registering in the Supreme Court the last Will of a deceased person.

When someone dies, the executor of their will is responsible for handling the estate. This includes disposing of the assets and paying off any debts. In order to get authority to do this, the executor would need to obtain a legal document called a Grant of Probate.

A Grant of Probate is a document issued by the Supreme Court that allows the executor to deal with the deceased person's estate. The grant is usually issued after the executor has provided the Supreme Court with a copy of the deceased person's will, and certain other documents such as an oath of executorship and an inventory of the deceased person's assets.

Legal advice that you can rely on

At Alan Mckimm & Associates, we know that professional advice is essential when it comes to estate planning, especially if you have a family that depends on the stability provided by your Estate.

If you have young children or older parents then careful estate planning is vital to ensure their future care needs are taken care of. It is also important to consider the potential for second marriages and subsequent divorces which can affect what happens to your assets after you pass away.

In short, if you have anything to leave behind it is important that this distribution happens according to your wishes and not under the direction of a Court.

Contesting Wills

In some cases, people choose to contest a will after the death of the person who made it. This usually happens when someone feels that they have not been left their fair share of the estate, or when they believe that the will was made under undue influence.

A will can also be challenged or contested if the deceased did not make adequate provision for certain people. This includes spouses, former spouses and partners. This is commonly referred to as a family provision claim.

If you are considering contesting a will then it is important to seek legal advice. Wills and estate disputes can be a long and costly process, especially if they go to trial. They can also mean that the distribution of your estate is delayed while the matter is being settled in court.

The earlier you get legal advice from a suitable lawyer, the better chance you have of settling matters out of court before things become more involved.

At Alan Mckimm & Associates, our will and estate lawyers are here to help we have experience in all areas of will disputes and can provide you with expert legal services so that you need to make an informed decision about whether or not to contest a will.
