Frequently Asked Questions

Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s assets to the entitled beneficiaries.

The deceased person’s spouse, children, parents, or other next of kin are entitled to probate. In some cases, the court may appoint an executor or administrator to manage the probate process. If you have been appointed as an executor or administrator, you should consult with a lawyer to ensure that you fulfil your duties and responsibilities.

The duties of an executor or administrator include:

  • Collecting & inventorying the deceased person’s assets;
  • Paying the deceased person’s debts & taxes;
  • Distributing the assets to the entitled beneficiaries.

A probate lawyer can help you with all aspects of the probate process, including filing the necessary paperwork, administering the estate, and distributing the assets to the entitled beneficiaries. Probate lawyers can also help you if you are contesting the will or if you are an executor or administrator who is being sued by a beneficiary.
