Probate & Deceased Estate Services Humevale

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.

Our experts are able to support Executors or Administrators in submitting an application to the Supreme Court of Victoria for a Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, and the subsequent distribution of the Estate as per the deceased’s Will.

A “Probate” is a certification provided by the Supreme Court of Victoria that confirms the legitimacy of a Will, allowing the Executor to commence gathering 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.

De Maria & Associates stands ready to offer professional guidance and support in this potentially complex and taxing process, which depends on the nature and scope 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)
