Probate is an order from the Supreme Court (Probate Division) stating that the deceased’s Will has been proved valid. The executor named in the Will is then authorised to administer the estate. Their duties include paying debts of the estate, realising assets and distributing those assets to the beneficiaries.

If you do not have a valid Will when you die you create an ‘intestacy’. This means that your assets can only be distributed in accordance with the laws of intestacy. If you do not have any next of kin your assets may end up in the hands of the Government. Contact us to ensure that your Will is properly drafted. (03) 8844 5514
