Should I make a Will?
Yes. Making a will is essential if you would like to decide who will receive your assets and belongings after you die. It is particularly important to make a will if you have a family or other dependants. Even if you are married you will need a Will.

Letters of Administration
In the event that a valid will has not been left, Sharon Moore can assist you with applying for Letters of Administration to the Supreme Court of NSW. In these circumstances, there is legislation which details how an estate may be distributed and by whom.
Sharon Moore can help you apply to the Supreme Court of NSW for Probate in instances where there is a valid will and you have been nominated as Executor of that will. The Supreme Court can then grant probate which authorities you to distribute the deceased estate in accordance with the provisions of the will.
