Probate & Deceased Estate Services Kangaroo Ground

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.

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.

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.

  • Mediation
  • Lodging Caveats
  • Removal of Executors

  • Deceased Estate Litigation
  • Challenging or Defending a Will
  • Unequal division of assets between beneficiaries
