Probate is the process of proving and registering the Last Will in the Supreme Court of South Australia, and is also a document issued by the Court certifying the Will's validity and the appointment of an Executor enabling the administration of a Deceased Estate.

When a person dies leaving a Will and is possessed of assets which may include real estate shares or large sums of money it is necessary to obtain a Grant of Probate from the Supreme Court of South Australia which enables the Executor who becomes the Legal Personal Representative of the Deceased to deal with the Estate and to distribute the assets of the Estate in accordance with the terms of the Deceased's Will.

Obtaining Probate is complex and involves a thorough understanding of the Supreme Court Rules and knowledge of other legal principles including property law. Stokes Legal have obtained Probate in many cases including complex Wills, large Estates, small Estates and also in cases where there have been problems with the Will.

In cases where a person dies without a Will a Grant of Letters of Administration is required where the Supreme Court of South Australia appoints an Administrator (generally a family member) to deal with the Estate and to distribute the assets of the Estate in accordance with South Australian Statute Law.
