Getting a grant of probate in South Australia

When you are entrusted to deal with the estate of a deceased loved one, it can feel overwhelming. We are here to guide you through this time with compassion, clarity and certainty.

A ‘Grant of Probate’ is the official recognition by the Supreme Court that a Will is legally valid. You may need to get a ‘Grant of Probate’ before you can legally deal with any assets under a deceased person’s Will.
