Where do I start with Probate When there is a Will

Resolved Question:

Where do I start with Probate When there is a Will

1. I would advise you either to get a solicitor to assist with the probate of a will, getting a quote for services in advance. Or else, if you wish to probate the will yourself, go along to the Probate Office in Dublin 7 beside the Four Courts complex and get the forms for submission of the will to probate. The staff in the Probate office will also guide you as to the practical steps you need to take once the will has been submitted for probate. Be aware that even if you probate the will yourself, you will need to get a solicitor to do the conveyancing as solicitors have a monopoly on the transfer of real property. However, all other aspects of the probating of the will and the division of money, such as obtaining access to money in the bank accounts of the deceased can be done by you without the use of the services of a solicitor. In your query, you stated you have the probate forms and need help. Accordingly, I would advise you to attend at a local office of FLAC where you can get the help of a lawyer for free. Go to www.flac.ie where you will find a list of the offices. Go along to one of the offices and arrange an appointment to see an adviser. In this fashion you can get practical help to submit the will to probate and administer the assets of the estate.
