Preparing a Will while you still have the mental capacity to do so, is the only way to safeguard your intentions relating to how you want your assets to be distributed after you have passed away.

If you are an Executor or an Executrix of a Will, we can offer you legal advice in respect of whether a formal grant of Probate needs to be prepared to lodge in the Supreme Court of New South Wales and advise you of your legal responsibilities in carrying out the distribution of the assets in accordance with the deceased's Will. We understand that this can be an incredibly emotional time and we endeavour to be considerate, respectful and compassionate in our communications with you at all times.
