AS ANYONE WHO HAS LOST SOMEONE CLOSE TO THEM WILL KNOW, THE IMMEDIATE PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS THAT SURROUND A DEATH OFTEN LEAVE LITTLE TIME FOR THE PEOPLE LEFT BEHIND TO PROPERLY GRIEVE.
There’s a seemingly endless trail of medical and registry paperwork to be completed before funeral arrangements can be made and the probate process can be started.
If you’ve been asked to act as the executor or administrator of the estate, seeking probate can be very daunting at a time already highly charged with emotion.
Using our skilled and experienced probate solicitors to help you or work on your behalf can speed up the process and give you more space to come to terms with your loss and to share time with other people who may need emotional support.
We can help you with:
- Probate & Estate Administration
- Defending a Will
- Challenging a Will
The process of managing a person’s money, property and possessions following their death involves collecting any money that’s owed, settling any outstanding debts and dealing with any beneficiary disputes. Once authorisation to distribute the estate is granted, we will divide it amongst the beneficiaries before closing bank accounts.
Using our probate solicitors also gives you a degree of separation and help you remain neutral in what can be an emotional time where families often disagree over the Will and the distribution of assets.
