Probate is a legal process whereby a person’s Will is deemed valid and the wishes and instructions in the Will may commence by the Executor of the Will.
Before this process can begin, an application for a Grant of Probate to the Court is generally needed. This is the very first step in beginning of putting into effect the deceased person’s Will. It is essentially asking the Court permission to confirm that the Will is valid and is able to be effected.
Legal practitioners will help you with the probate process as they require certain steps, which can be complicated, particularly if minors have been included as beneficiaries in the Will.
