Being left with the responsibility of dealing with a deceased estate is difficult to deal with when you have just lost someone you love. Paperwork, legal matters and family mediation should be the last thing you have to cope with at this time, so at Avery & Ashoorian Lawyers, we are here to help.

Probate is the process of proving and registering in the Supreme Court the last Will and Testament of the deceased. We advise executors and trustees and assist with the duties and obligations which come with being executor of the Will. As your lawyer, we will help ensure that the Will is followed, along with supporting you with the distribution and disposal of their assets and debts.

Some of the ways we can assist in this time include:

  • Applying for Probate of the Will in the Supreme Court
  • Contesting wills and defending estate litigation in the Supreme Court
  • Dealing with intestacy (where there is no Will)
  • Applying for Letters of Administration (if the Will is deemed invalid or absent)
  • Obtaining valuations of estate property
  • Collecting estate financial assets
  • Paying estate debts including mortgages and funeral costs
  • Administration of trust funds
  • Distributing bequests and inheritances to beneficiaries
  • Family mediation and negotiation
