6. WILLS, POWERS OF ATTORNEY & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION

Sandran Balan and Associates recommend seeking the advice of an experienced solicitor in any of the matters that relate to estate and succession planning or estate administration. We understand that such matters are both sensitive and specific to the personal circumstances of each client. We work with you and to achieve your particular goals or meet your particular needs quickly and efficiently.

  • Probate
    Application to the High Court for Probate in instances where there is a valid Will and you have been nominated as the Executor of that Will. The High Court can then grant probate which authorises the executor to distribute the deceased estate in accordance with the provisions of the Will.

  • Letters of Administration
    If the case is complicated where a valid Will has not been left, then we can assist you with the application for Letters of Administration to the High Court. In these circumstances, there is legislation that details how an estate may be distributed and by whom. The High Court can appoint an Administrator to distribute the estate.

  • Claims Against Estates
    If you expected to be a beneficiary of a Will but have not been provided for, you may be able to make a claim against the distribution of any estate, provided you can clearly set out reasons as to why you should be considered a beneficiary of the deceased estate.

     

  • Wills and Powers of Attorney
    We always recommend keeping your estate planning documents up-to- date as it makes distributing your estate far easier on your beneficiaries in what is already a stressful and difficult time.

5. FAMILY LAW

Family law is a constantly changing area that calls for specialist advice. No matter how simple or complex a set of circumstances is, we will work with you to resolve your matter.

We are sensitive to the personal circumstances of each client and we know that advice or representation in family law matters must be coupled with an awareness of your personal needs. We promote methods of alternative dispute resolution such as conciliation, mediation, arbitration and collaborative law process.

Marriage breakdown often includes business disputes with significant commercial consequences. A spouse may be a shareholder in a company jointly owned with the other, a beneficiary in a trust or a co-owner of land. Our experience enables us to advice on every aspect of your relationship and the consequences of its breakdown.

We strive to ensure that you derive the benefit of our combined knowledge and can be assured that your matter will always receive the attention it deserves.
