As an additional aspect of our services John R Quinn & Co prepare and undertake Applications for Probate of the will of a deceased person. An Executor usually, but not always, cannot deal with the assets of a deceased person without first obtaining Probate.
Probate is a Court Order certifying that the executor has been granted Probate. Once Probate is granted the executor can collect or “bring in” the assets of the deceased, pay liabilities of the deceased and thereafter distribute the assets of the estate in accordance with the terms of the will of the deceased.
The executor may need assistance with matters such as Probate, Transmission Applications, defining and collecting assets and lastly the distribution of the estate.
Kevin O’Kane will ensure that the professional administration of your estate is undertaken efficiently and effectively. Kevin will explain clearly each stage of the process.
(Formerly known as The Family Provision Act)
In the event a claim is made to alter the terms of a will or to set the will aside, the executor would deal with such Applications and would normally seek the assistance of a lawyer in so doing.
Kevin O’Kane of John R Quinn & Co is highly experienced in this area and is able to provide such services. Kevin will advise you as to your potential success or otherwise in the event you make a claim on an estate, or you dispute the validity of a will or if as an executor you are defending the terms of a will.
The strength or weakness of your case will be fully explained by Kevin as well as the process of filing or defending a claim, mediation and out-of-court settlements and actually conducting proceedings if the matter is contested by way of a hearing.Back to FAQ
