Bereavement – it’s never easy, whether you’re young or not so young…. And then there’s the paperwork. If there’s a will, the executor probably needs to apply for probate. That can seem daunting. Kiwilaw has a proven online service, developed by experienced lawyer, Cheryl Simes, that makes probate easy. For most probate applications, Kiwilaw’s legal fees are only $490. Documents are sent within 24 hours for you to sign. See Kiwilaw’s website for testimonials from happy clients. Once you’ve sent the documents to the High Court,
it takes three or four weeks for the High Court to send the grant of probate to you. The content of the probate application is the same regardless of who prepares it. It does not need knowledge of the family background or the property. Kiwilaw uses advanced technology to do the same work – better. After getting probate, use Kiwilaw’s Guide to Estate Administration. See website kiwilaw.co.nz / probate for more information. Work out what needs to be done, and whether you will do it yourself or pay someone else. Remember – just because a lawyer holds the will, it doesn’t mean they hold the purse strings! Check their fee first, before you use anyone except Kiwilaw to apply for probate!
