If you’ve put off creating a Will because you find it an overwhelming task, we’re here to help. Creating a Will is extremely important as it safeguards your estate from being distributed as someone else (in accordance to the Intestate Succession Act) sees fit. The initial cost of a Will is also minimal compared to the costs that are involved if you do not have a Will.
Probate, the legal process of validifying and administering a Will, is typically initiated by filing a petition with the appropriate court. The process can be complex and the courts recommend, though do not require, that a lawyer with experience in probate help you with this.
