THE WILL A Will is a legal document which sets out how a person wants their belongings to be distributed after their death. The executor of the Will is responsible for distributing the person's assets, after payment of debts, to the people named in the Will as beneficiaries. For estates valued over approximately $10,000, depending on which State or Territory you live in, a grant of probate may be needed. This process ensures by court order that the Will is the final and valid Will of the person who has died. If there is no Will, the State Trustee, Public Trustee or a solicitor can give you advice on what to do. Probate Brochure
