What Is Probate in Queensland

In Queensland, probate allows an executor to distribute q deceased person’s estate as per their will. When a person dies, their assets and liabilities form part of their estate. Probate is necessary to legally transfer the deceased person’s assets to their beneficiaries and to ensure that the deceased person’s debts and taxes are paid.

A grant of probate in Queensland involves the Supreme Court of Queensland. The court grants probate to the executor named in the deceased person’s will. The executor or administrator is responsible for managing the deceased person’s assets, paying their debts, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries according to the terms of the will or the law.

To obtain probate in Queensland, the executor must file an application with the Supreme Court. The application must include a copy of the deceased person’s will, death certificate and other legal documents prepared by an estates lawyer. The court will review the application and, if everything is in order, issue a grant of probate.

The probate process in Queensland can be complex and time-consuming, especially if there are disputes over the deceased person’s estate. It’s important to seek legal advice if you’re involved in a probate matter in Queensland. Our estate lawyers can assist with obtaining a grant of probate.
