Managing the affairs of a loved one who has just passed? One call can make all the difference.


Losing somebody close to you is difficult enough as it is. Being tasked with managing their affairs can make it even harder.   

That is where Nikolovski Lawyers can help.

How do I care for my loved one’s estate?

As we advise all our clients, the very first thing you should do is allow yourself the time to heal and grieve. After that, our experienced team of estate planning lawyers will be ready and willing to help you handle your loved one’s affairs.

We’ll take care of notifying the relevant authorities and institutions of the deceased’s passing, and take the time to know the wishes of your loved ones inside and out.

If you come to us as the executor of the estate, we will take your instructions and offer our expert advice where necessary. We will prepare your application to the Supreme Court of New South Wales for a grant of probate (if the deceased had a valid will) or letters of administration (if they did not), which will assign you the right to begin distributing the assets from the deceased estate.

This is a mandatory process that can feel strange and confusing, but it is essential in ensuring that your loved one’s assets are distributed in the way that they wished. We’ll be with you every step of the way to explain the process, draft any documentation, and finalise the distribution of assets to each beneficiary.

Contact our team on (02) 4227 6833, or email to speak to one of our property and estates lawyers today.
