Probate & Deceased Estate Services Eden Park

De Maria & Associates offer Probate and Deceased Estate services in the Northern Suburbs including Doreen, Mill Park, Whittlesea, Bundoora, Diamond Creek, Wollert, Hurstbridge, South Morang and Epping.

Executors or Administrators can receive assistance from our team in the application process for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration at the Supreme Court of Victoria, followed by the distribution of the Estate in line with the deceased’s Will.

The Supreme Court of Victoria offers “Probate,” a document that verifies a Will, empowering the Executor to start the process of collecting the deceased’s assets.

The “Letters of Administration” process is similar and takes place when there isn’t a Will; in this case, the next of kin is tasked with overseeing the estate and distributing the assets in line with legal provisions.

At De Maria & Associates, we’re equipped to deliver professional advice and assistance in a process that might be complex and demanding, varying with the characteristics and extent of the deceased’s estate.

We offer the following expertise:

  • Mediation
  • Lodging Caveats
  • Removal of Executors
  • Family Provision Claims
  • Deceased Estate Litigation
  • Challenging or Defending a Will
  • Unequal division of assets between beneficiaries
  • Part IV Claims of the Administration & Probate Act (1958)
  • Issuing a Testators Family Maintenance Claim

These might include questions about the legitimacy of a Will, being omitted from a Will, contesting a Will, doubts about the mental capacity of the Will maker when the Will was signed, or if the Will was not properly executed.

If you have been overlooked in a Will or feel that your share of the estate is unfair, our firm is prepared to assist you in challenging or contesting the Will to gain a just settlement (certain restrictions may apply).
