Probate / Deceased Estates

Sound Legal Advice about Wills and Estates in Victoria from McManus & Co

Wills and estate matters inevitably involve death, distribution of estates, and a consideration of responsibilities.  Whilst they may appear black and white, there is a lot of grey matter to consider. Getting good advice at the outset can save a lot of unnecessary expense and conflict later.

We provide comprehensive advice and assistance in the following matters:

  • Making a Will
  • Obtaining a Probate
  • Obtaining Letters of Administration
  • Contesting a Will

Making a will

Making a will is the best way to ensure that your estate goes to those you choose.  A will gives you the opportunity to make plans for your children, minimise disputes following death and enjoy peace of mind moving forward.

Will disputes

Our probate lawyers are sensitive to the necessary emotions at play in will disputes, and can provide you with pragmatic and cost-effective advice about the strength of any claim.
