  • E-filing the application for the probate or succession order
  • Submitting physically the original will or an application to verify the will
  • Providing a certificate or declaration of your loved one's death including Apostille. 
  • Serving legal notice to all heirs if any or beneficiaries under the will or intestacy.
  • Preparing a foreign legal opinion to family court (if your loved one did not live in Israel). 
  • Closing any procedure with Israeli banks including any revenue requirements for Australian residents.  
  • Wiring the funds to the clients in Australia and review the accounting with the client.

We also have vast experience with helping Australian clients to contest the validity of wills or to oppose applications for probate or succession orders efficiently, and in a time-sensitive manner. We also advise with the registration and recording of inherited property and with handling all tax-related matters if any! We also work with our clients to locate any inherited unclaimed property in Israel.
