Death in a family is a time of great stress and sadness for all the family members and friends who are left behind. Unfortunately the death of a person does not bring an end to a family’s problems, as the deceased persons financial affairs have to be managed, in order that monies can be collected in, property dealt with and the assets distributed between the family.
The process that allows a family member ( called an Executor ) to collect in the assets and distribute them, is called Probate; it is the formal authority of the High Court to authorise the Executor to carry out his/her duties, as per the Deceased persons instructions, as set out in his/her Will. It takes 6 months approximately.
We can guide you through the process and carry out the work on your behalf. The process is very complex and the staff in Bourke Solicitors have the skills and knowledge to carry out the work speedily and efficiently
