Reseal Of Probate Victoria

Interstate & Overseas Reseals – Ask Our Experienced Melbourne Estate Lawyers

Why do you need to Reseal an Interstate or Foreign Probate in Victoria Australia?

There are instances where a deceased person may not have been a resident of Victoria, Australia, but owned assets in the State of Victoria.

A reseal of the Grant of Probate or Administration application may be required by the Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, in order for the Executor, Administrator or the Estate’s Lawyer to gain control of the assets.

A reseal of the Grant of Probate can be dealt with as soon as the original Grant of Probate is obtained in the state or country of origin. We are able to apply for a reseal of a foreign Grant of Probate from most originating countries (or states in Australia outside Victoria).

At CKL Lawyers our senior Estate Lawyers have over 35 years experience in Probate Law and can assist you with all aspects of your Reseal of Probate in Victoria.
