Probate & Deceased Estates
Probate is the process of dealing with a deceased person’s estate and proving of a will. For a grant of Probate to be made, there must be a Will.
It is dependant on the acceptance by the Probate Registry of the Supreme Court that the deceased’s will is valid and the last will in existence. Depending on the type, size and value of the assets will determine if you need to obtain a grant in South Australia.
If a grant is approved, the deceased person’s debts can be paid and their wishes carried out.
