Stoikovich Lawyers can help you apply to the Supreme Court of NSW for Probate in instances where there is a valid Will and you have been nominated as 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.
LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION
In the some what complicated event that a valid Will has not been left, Stoikovich Lawyers can assist you with applying for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court of NSW. 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 Succession Act XXXX.
THE FAMILY PROVISIONS ACT 1982 (now known as SUCCESSION ACT 2006)
If you are expecting to be a Beneficiary of a Will but have not been provided for, you can make a claim against the distribution of any Estate under the Family Provision Act 1982, provided you can clearly set out reasons as to why you should be considered a Beneficiary of the deceased Estate.
