Wills and Probate

Zaitman Lawyers has long standing experience in preparation of Wills and can advise you to ensure that your wishes are accurately recorded and legalities complied with.

WILLS

Preparation of your Will is extremely significant and personal and it is important that you accurately record your intentions. If you do not have a properly drawn and professionally prepared Will, you leave open the prospect of disputes and in some instances Court proceedings involving conflicts and potential claims by Beneficiaries and other family members.

 

\In making a Will it is important to consider a number of matters, which include the appointment of the Executor to administer your estate, specific bequests of personal possessions, care for young children, the establishment of testamentary trusts for family beneficiaries, disposition of assets such as real estate and investments, division of assets between different Beneficiaries and charitable bequests. A properly drawn Will is essential to ensure your wishes are properly dealt with.

PROBATE

A grant of Probate, through the Supreme Court of Victoria (Probate Division), is applied for and obtained by the Executor appointed under a Will of a deceased person. This then gives the Executor the legal right to collect and account for all liabilities and assets of the deceased and dispose of such assets to the beneficiaries under the Will. These assets may typically include real estate money in the bank, superannuation funds, personal assets, such as jewellery, paintings etc.

We can advise you and make Probate Applications through the Supreme Court Probate Office. We will advise you in regard to the procedure and legal compliance prepare the necessary documents and make the application on behalf of the Executor of the Estate.

We will also represent you in any disputes or claim which you may have in respect of disposition of assets by the deceased.
