Probate & Deceased Estate Services Glenvale

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.

We offer assistance to Executors or Administrators in applying to the Supreme Court of Victoria for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, and in the estate distribution process, adhering to the terms of the deceased’s Will.

The Supreme Court of Victoria issues “Probate,” a legal document that validates a Will, enabling the Executor to initiate the collection of the deceased’s assets.

If there’s no Will, “Letters of Administration” is a parallel process, where the next of kin is assigned to manage the estate, and to gather and disperse the estate’s assets following the law.

Our team at De Maria & Associates can provide skilled advice and direction in a process that may be daunting and intricate, depending on the nature and magnitude 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)
