In Sydney and NSW, Sarajinsky & Co Solicitors can aid you in applying to the NSW Supreme Court for Probate in situations where a valid will has nominated you as that will’s Executor. The Supreme Court will then be able to grant probate, which will authorise you to distribute the estate according to the will’s provisions.
