Probate refers to the legal matters following the death of someone, where the person who dies leaves a will. A grant of probate is issued by the Supreme Court of Victoria when the deceased leaves a valid Will at the time of death that nominates a person or persons as executor or executors of the will.
An executor of a will has to apply for a grant of probate in the probate division of the Supreme Court of Victoria. 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 you should contact Shane McClure for urgent assistance.
The Supreme Court of Victoria in its probate jurisdiction usually takes approximately three to eight weeks to process and make a Grant or Probate. It will take longer if the probate application has any errors that need to be corrected or the Probate Office requires further information.
