Our probate solicitors can help to reduce your stress


When a loved one passes away it can be extremely stressful, but having to deal with their legal affairs on top of this can be too much for some people to deal with. At Andrew and Andrew, our legal advisors have over sixty years of experience when it comes to dealing with a deceased loved one’s legal affairs. We know how upsetting it can be to discuss a loved one after they have passed away, so our probate solicitors Portsmouth always approach these matters sensitively as well as professionally. Estates, wills and general assets as well as finances can all be up in the air after a loved one dies, especially if there were no clear instructions left behind for you to follow. If you are struggling to organise your loved one’s legal affairs we recommend that you seek advice by making a free consultation appointment to speak to one of our professionals. They will be able to then get a better understanding of your situation and explain how it is that they can help you.

Getting the support you need when it matters most

Losing a loved one is considered as being one of the most stressful things that someone can go through in their life. Having one of our experienced probate solicitors Portsmouth guide you through the process from start to finish can help to relieve you of pressure, as well as making sure that everything runs smoothly with no problems. Dealing sympathetically with your process, we are capable of distributing your loved one’s estate as they specified in their will, or in circumstances where there is no will we will divide up your loved one’s estate using the intestacy rules. Under these rules only married partners, civil partners, children and other close relatives can inherit things from your loved one’s estate.

Ensure everything runs smoothly by getting legal advice as soon as possible

If you are a personal representative of an estate then you will have certain responsibilities to fulfil. Our probate solicitors Portsmouth understand that when you have just lost a loved one and find yourself in an emotional time, fulfilling these responsibilities can seem like an impossible task. Asking for legal advice sooner rather than later can save you a lot of stress and help to reduce what can sometimes be an incredibly lengthy process. In a majority of circumstances you will need to provide a grant of representation, but this is not always the case and something that your legal advisor will inform you about if you do indeed require one. After this has been done several other things shall take place before the distribution of your loved one’s estate. For example, we will draft all of the necessary legal documents, deal with tax implications as well as settling debts. Having one of our professional team ensures that this process takes place without any complications, and dealing with them for you if complications should arise, means that you have considerably less to deal with alone and can find the time to focus on other important family matters.
