Probate


Probate Court SealThe sense of grief that accompanies death is often a painful, sad process that takes time to resolve.

The last thing you need to deal with at this time is bureaucratic, legal documentation.  Let us help reduce this burden for you.

Where the deceased leaves a Will …

  • Advising if you don’t need either of the above.
  • Publishing your ‘Notice of Intention to Apply for Probate’.
  • Drafting your ‘Probate Grant’.
  • Drafting your ‘Probate Summons’.
  • Drafting your ‘Affidavit and Annexed Inventory’, including other attachments.

Where the deceased does not leave a Will …

  • Drafting your ‘Letters of Administration Grant’.
