WHAT DOES A PROBATE LAWYER DO? - PKWA PROBATE LAWYERS

PKWA LAW is a Singapore Probate Law Firm specialising in Wills, Grant of Probate, Letter of Administration and LPAs.

How Probate Lawyers help you

Nobody really likes to talk about death, but we all will pass away one day. So, you should understand about Wills, estate planning and the probate process. Understanding all these things will help you understand how a probate lawyer can help you.

In many ways, a probate lawyer is perhaps the most important of all types of lawyers. You might not need a conveyancing lawyer if you dont buy a house. You might never need a litigation lawyer if you dont have a court case. You might never need a corporate lawyer if you have no corporate interests.

But you would most certainly need a probate lawyer because death is certain and assets need to be passed down or transferred to the rightful beneficiaries.

An estate lawyer can help you to write your Will and provide certainty and peace of mind. At PKWA Law, we have helped many clients to make their Will. Making your Will is important if you wish to distribute your assets to the people you love.

If you do not make a Will, your assets may go to people you don’t wish to benefit.

Your estate lawyer will advise you on the following:

  • How you structure and write your will;
  • who you should appoint as your executors;
  • and how your estate is distributed (who gets what).

What is Probate?

When a family member dies, somebody has to deal with their “estate”. In simple terms, a person’s estate is the assets owned by the person. These assets have to be distributed to the beneficiaries.

Assets can be made up of the money, property and any possessions they had at the time of their death.

To deal with his or her estate or assets in Singapore, you must apply for a Grant of Probate (if there was a Will) or Letters of Administration (if there was no Will). To do this, you need the assistance of a probate lawyer.

Your probate lawyer will apply for Grant of Probate or Letter of Administration so that you can collect any money that is owed, settle any debts due (including taxes) and divide the estate amongst the lawful beneficiaries.

If you are an Executor named in the will, or the next of kin, we can help you to apply to court to obtain the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration. As the administration of the Estate should be done without undue delay so that the assets can be distributed to the beneficiaries, you should get a experienced Probate lawyer.
