Probate support

How we can help

When somebody dies, it can be overwhelming dealing with someone’s estate, at an already difficult time. This might include someone’s property, finances and possessions.

This can be a demanding, time consuming and overwhelming process that comes at an already difficult time of loss. There are lots of things to consider such as applying for Probate, which can be further complicated if there are other executors of the will, or if no will exists.

However, you don’t need to face these challenges alone. We can offer help and guide you to additional support if you’re going through this process.

For more specific help and support, see dealing with bereavement and loss.
