People who know about their illness from quite some time must have planned for the future and draft a will and testament. However, death not always comes pre-planned, in cases of fatal accidents death is uncertain. Well, whatever might be the case, a probate lawyer will help in distributing the estate, property and monetary fund of an individual to his or her family members, friends, and third parties who are entitled for the same.
In the case where there is a will or a testament has been prepared, distribution of an estate gets easier. Of course, until and unless there is a huge amount of debt is accumulated. In case an individual might have left behind a lot for his or her family members but at the same time there is credit card and other debts which are also to be paid then in such case money will first be used for clearing the debt. The remainder will be distributed amongst members.
In the case where no will was left behind by the deceased, i.e. a person died intestate, the distribution will take place as per intestacy law. An Estate lawyer Gold Coast will help you with the same.
If any family member or friend who thinks that he or she deserves a share in the will then he or she can challenge the will and receive the money or possession to which one is entitled. One of the important things is that will should be challenged when you have some valid reason. For example, an individual forgot to mention the name of the spouse or children. These people have a reasonable basis to challenge. However, there are cases where a probate lawyer might be able to solve the challenge without going to court but challenges often go through the lengthy litigation process.
