INHERITANCE LAWYER IN SIGNAPORE
WILLS, PROBATE & ESTATE LAWYER IN SINGAPORE
What does an inheritance lawyer do? What is estate planning and what does a probate or estate lawyer do?
Estate planning – Writing your Will
Estate Planning is often left by people until it is too late. You should do your estate planning now because you don’t want your family members to be fighting over your assets when you are gone. If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.
An estate lawyer can help you to write your Will and provide certainty and peace of mind. At PKWA Law, we have helped many clients to make their Will. Making your Will is important if you wish to distribute your assets to the people you love. If you do not make a Will, your assets may go to people you don’t wish to benefit.
Your estate lawyer will advise you on the following: How you structure and write your will, who you should appoint as your executors, and how your estate is distributed (who gets what).
Probate – Dealing with a person’s Estate and Inheritance
When a family member dies, somebody has to deal with their “estate”. In simple terms, a person’s estate is the assets owned by the person. These assets have to be distributed to the beneficiaries.
Assets can be made up of the money, property and any possessions they had at the time of their death.
To deal with his or her estate or assets in Singapore, you must apply for a Grant of Probate (if there was a Will) or Letters of Administration (if there was no Will).
The process of Probate involves collecting any money that is owed, settling any debts due (including taxes) and dividing the estate amongst the lawful beneficiaries.
If you are an Executor named in the will, or the next of kin, we can help you to apply to court to obtain the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration. As the administration of the Estate should be done without undue delay so that the assets can be distributed to the beneficiaries, you should get a experienced Probate lawyer. At PKWA Law, we normally assist our clients to obtain Probate within 1 to 2 months from the time we are instructed.
