Probate & Deceased Estate Services Montmorency

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 issues “Probate,” a legal document that validates a Will, enabling the Executor to initiate the collection of 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 can provide professional guidance and advice in a process that can be difficult and complex depending on the nature 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

Estate Disputes Near Montmorency

It’s an unfortunate reality that the death of someone dear can be a tough period, and inheritance quarrels can further complicate matters.

Many issues can trigger disputes over estates after a loved one has passed away. Such issues might include the validity of a Will, being excluded from a Will, a challenge to a Will, concerns about the mental capacity of the person who made the Will at the time it was signed, or incorrect execution of the Will.

Should you find yourself excluded from a Will, or if you believe your inheritance is insufficient, our firm can support you in challenging or disputing the Will to secure a fair settlement (restrictions may apply).
