During a time of grief, executors, beneficiaries and other parties can find it difficult to make legally responsible decisions. As experts in family law, Velos & Velos Lawyers can compassionately guide you through the process of will and estate, collection of estate assets, administration and distribution to beneficiaries efficiently according to the last will of the deceased recognised by the Supreme Court, ensuring it’s fair and with the least stress as possible for you and your loved ones.
Executor Duties and Compliance
If you are the executor of a will, Velos & Velos Lawyers can advise and help you ensure that you carry out your fiduciary and other duties completely and in full accordance with the law to ensure no unpleasant legal surprises or consequences occur later on.
Get Help with Estate Claims Before It’s Too Late
Wills and estates law has very strict timeframes, and some claims cannot be made after a certain date after the death of the will-maker. Any claims you wish to make must be brought to the attention of an expert wills and estates lawyer immediately after they have passed away. You may also need expert barrister advice to issue litigation to protect your legal rights and interests or to enter mediation to settle any will or estate dispute. If you’ve lost a loved one, you need expert estate planning lawyers, so contact Velos & Velos wills lawyers Melbourne today.
