|When someone dies, you’ll need to get the legal right to deal with their property, money and possessions (their ‘estate’). This process is known as Probate.|
The Probate process can often involve complicated legal, tax and financial work. It can be hard to work out how much work will be involved in administering an estate, the larger and more complex the estate, the more work is required to administer it.
|The time it takes to get probate or letters of administration varies according to the circumstances. If there are no complications it may only take six weeks, however, in more complex cases, it can and will take much longer. Most estates are administered within 6 months of death, however, the more complex the estate the longer the administration will take.|
|All probate cases will be managed by our specialist Probate team which includes Castelo Partner Ana Afonso Martins and our special counsel who will also work with other members of our team with the appropriate level of experience.|
