Real people that we’ve helped

From the outset, after my car accident, WA Legal were supportive and extremely knowledgeable. The office staff are kind and efficient. When my claim was settled (in a highly professional manner) I received more than I expected. During the entire process they were helpful and reassuring. Highly recommended!

I would like to start off with say W.A. Legal has been working with me since the start of 2019 and I am really happy with their service. They are well priced and have looked after my personal attachments that I need (wheelchairs/prosthetics) whenever I required upgrades. Their communication with ICWA was good and they walked me through every step of my claim with knowledge and explained everything to me. WA Legal are very professional and easy to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

WA Legal are as good as it gets. They're a law firm who genuinely care about their clients. They muscled through my claim as if it were their own, they took total ownership, kept me informed and never dropped the ball. You will not find a better group of professionals in this area of expertise. Thanks again for everything!

An executor of a will has to apply for a grant of probate in the probate division of the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

Probate is an order from the court stating that the deceased’s will has been proved valid with authority to administer the deceased’s estate being granted.

The Supreme Court in its probate jurisdiction has the power to make orders in relation to the validity of the will, the appointment of an executor and the administration of a deceased estate.

Where an executor is applying for a grant of probate there are a number of formal procedures which need to be followed. An affidavit has to be drafted in support of the executor’s application.

If you are an executor or an interested party and wish to discuss any aspect of the probate application.

Letters of administration

When a person dies intestate (leaving no will) an application for letters of administration must be filed at the probate division of the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

Distribution of the estate is governed by the Administration Act and is quite complex. If you wish to discuss this matter with a lawyer call us for a free of charge over the phone assessment.

Challenging unfair wills

If you have been left out of a will or the disposition in the will is unfair you may have a right to challenge the will.

There are a number of factors that have to be taken into account while determining your rights such as your relationship with the Deceased, the size of the Estate, your financial circumstances and others named in the will including who is financially dependant upon you or your current heath status.

Please keep in mind if you intend to challenge a Will strict time limits apply.
