Administering a deceased estate can be complicated and stressful for beneficiaries and executors alike.
At Whitsunday Law we have the experience and compassion to guide and assist you through this process and to ensure that the best possible outcomes are achieved with the least amount of distress and expense for all parties involved.
If a person has a Will, the nominated Executor is responsible for administering the estate. The Executor’s Duties involve applying for Probate, collecting assets and distributing assets to beneficiaries in accordance with the Will.
If a person doesn’t have a Will, the Supreme Court will appoint an Administrator to administer the estate. Queensland laws set out who has priority to be Administrator.
The purpose of probate is to prove the Will filed in Court is the deceased’s last real and valid Will so your Executor may legally distribute your property.
Whatever your situation, Whitsunday Law can help take the hard part out of managing a loved one’s estate.
