Wills, Probate & Estate Planning Lawyers

Wills, probate & estate planning law is the set of laws and regulations which governs the creation of wills and trusts and the distribution of the property or assets of an individual among his or her beneficiaries at the time of his or her death. This law governs how an estate should be distributed and who should distribute them.

What is Wills, Probate & Estate Planning Law?

Wills, probate & estate planning law helps to ensure that the assets of an individual are divided or distributed properly to his or her intended beneficiaries at the time of his or her death. This law covers areas such as granting of administration, validity of wills, rectifying wills and the means and methods of distributing assets when no will has been created prior to the demise of the individual.

Wills, probate & estate planning law includes laws such as the Family Provision Act 1982 and the Public Trustee Act 1913. Under the Family Provision Act 1982, an individual who expected to be a beneficiary but was not provided to or not included in the last will and testament of the demised can file claims provided he or she can present valid reasons on why he or she should be considered as beneficiary and should be included in the will.

Who Needs Wills, Probate & Estate Planning Lawyers?

Wills, probate & estate planning law gives the beneficiaries and the potential beneficiaries of a demised individual the opportunity to file claims for consideration to be included in the last wills and testaments. If these individuals are able to provide valid reasons to be considered as beneficiaries, they can be given a fair share of the assets that have been left behind by the deceased individual.

Wills, probate & estate planning law firms and lawyers help individuals to gain a fair share of the assets that has been left behind by a dead relative. If an individual believes that he or she should have been given a fair share of the property and assets but was not included or mentioned in the will, this individual can ask the help of the wills, probate & estate planning lawyers to get his or her share of the assets.

In the case where there is a valid will and the individual has been given authorization by the deceased to execute distribution of the assets according to the provisions stated in the will, the wills, probate & estate planning lawyers can assist the individual in applying for Probate in the Supreme Court.

Other services that the wills, probate & estate planning lawyers can offer are:
