Probate & Deceased Estates

At King & Dudley we understand that dealing with a deceased estate is one of the more difficult challenges in life. From mountains of paper work to legal jargon and simmering family disputes, they’re the last things you want to deal with when you’re grieving the loss of someone important in your life.

We can help you by:

  • Interpreting the Will of the deceased in terms of estate laws
  • Advising executors and trustees in regard to their duties and rights
  • Informing government bodies including Centrelink and Veterans Affairs
  • Applying for Probate of the Will in the Supreme Court
  • Dealing with intestacy (where there is no Will)
  • Applying for Letters of Administration (if the Will is deemed invalid or is absent)
  • Identifying estate assets and liabilities
  • Obtaining valuations of estate property
  • Collecting estate financial assets including superannuation, bank funds, shares, outstanding loans, and insurance payouts
  • Selling or transferring estate property including estate auctions
  • Paying estate debts including mortgages, funeral costs, and testamentary expenses
  • Advising in regard to family and testamentary trustsAdministering trust funds
  • Distributing bequests and inheritances to beneficiaries
