At Millards, we assist our clients from preparing their Wills to eventually assisting their family members with the administration of their estate after death.
How an estate is administered depends on whether there is a Will, and the size of the estate. Often a grant of Probate or Letters of Administration must be obtained from the Court. We can assist you with this process as well identifying and collecting estate assets, paying any debts or expenses, dealing with the sale or transfer of assets, communicating with beneficiaries and making final distributions. This process can take several months and in some estates, may be complex. That’s why we are here to help you.
Estate disputes can arise in many circumstances. For example, there may be disagreements between family members about the deceased’s intentions, the provisions of the Will, how the estate is to be administered, the deceased’s mental capacity when making their Will or how the Will is to be interpreted.
In cases where no provision or inadequate provision is made, an person may be able to apply to the Court for a share of the estate. This is called a ‘Family Provision Claim’.
If you need assistance with the administration of a deceased estate or would like advice about a possible family provision claim, please do not hesitate to contact us on (02) 9918 0222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
