Assistance with the Family Provision Act 1982
We always recommend keeping your will up-to-date. This makes distributing your estate a far less stressful event for your family/beneficiaries.
Letters of Administration
In the somewhat complicated event that a valid Will has not been left, we can assist you with applying to the Supreme Court of NSW for Letters of Administration. In these circumstances, there is legislation that details how an estate may be distributed and by whom. The Supreme Court can appoint an Administrator to distribute the estate under the Wills, Probate and Administration Act 1898.
The Family Provision Act 1982
If you expected to receive a bequest under a Will but have not been provided for, you can may be able to submit a claim under the Family Provision Act 1982, provided that you can clearly set out reasons as to why you should be considered a beneficiary of the deceased estate.
We can assist you in an application to the Supreme Court of NSW for Probate where there is a valid Will and you have been nominated as an Executor of that Will. The Supreme Court can then grant probate which authorises you to distribute the deceased estate in accordance with the provisions of the will.
