Probate & Deceased Estate Services Nutfield

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 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.

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)
