Why and When do you need Probate?

The general purpose of probate is to collect all the assets of the deceased; liquidate the assets into cash; pay all outstanding debts of the deceased (including taxes) and then finally, to distribute the monies or assets to the immediate spouse/children/siblings/relatives of the deceased.

The distribution of the assets is the final step.

If the loved one left behind a Will, the distribution must be done according to the Will of the deceased.  In such a case, you neeed to apply to court to obtain a Grant of Probate.

If the loved one did not have a Will, the distribution is done according to intestacy laws.  In such a situation, you need to apply for Grant of Letters of Administration.

To put it simply, the job of a probate lawyer is to help the executor get the necessary court order to administer the estate and to enable the beneficiaries to get their inheritance from the assets left behind by the deceased person.

PKWA Law Probate Lawyers

PKWA Law is one of the leading family law firms in Singapore.  The team of experienced probate lawyers at PKWA LAW will prepare and file all the legal documents and make all the court appearances for you to obtain Grant of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration in 4 to 6 weeks.

To get probate quickly, the executor should:

  • produce the Will (if any).
  • provide a list of all the assets. You should try not to instruct a probate lawyer to find out what assets the deceased has.  There are hundreds of financial institutions, and it is going to be very costly for you to ask a lawyer to investigate what assets the deceased has.
  • prepare a complete list of beneficiaries (with their full names, address and NRICs).

Once we have obtained for you probate, you have to pay the deceased’s debts and to distribute them to the rightful beneficiaries.  This is a very important job of the executor/ administrator and it must be carried out well to avoid disputes.
