Estates-Probate & Contesting a Will

We can advise you after the loss of a family member or close friend, and can prepare the appropriate documents to finalise your loved one’s property and financial affairs. We will prepare the relevant documents to finalise their estate and where required the documentation to obtain Probate or Letters of Administration in a speedy and cost efficient manner. We will help you in a professional and caring manner to make a difficult time as smooth as possible.

If you feel that you have been left out of a Will, or treated unfairly in regard to the Estate of a family member MJO Legal will assist you to protect enforce your rightful entitlement.

Our Team can advise you on disputes regarding a person’s estate, beneficiary’s rights and Executors powers. We can advise you on your rights under the Succession Act or in relation to Intestacy or Incapacity claims. We also act in contested matters, both under the Succession Act and the Probate and Administration Act.

Estate Litigation can be expensive and time consuming and MJO Legal views litigation as a last resort. For this reason, we usually encourage the parties to try and negotiate a settlement, however if that fails we can advise you of the necessary steps to take to resolve the issue, including mediation.
