Long distance help in all states

Claim must be commenced in the Claim State

The State where you should make your claim is called the Claim State.

As a general rule, the Claim State is the State where the deceased lived, and perhaps any other State where the deceased had substantial assets, such as real estate.

The laws of the Claim State will normally apply to your claim, and any court action must be taken in the Claim State. Each State and Territory has a different system for handling a Will Dispute.

We can act for you whether or not you live in the Claim State.

If you live in a State other than the Claim State, we can save you a lot of travelling as we can sue in the Claim State for you, without you having to travel there. We will tailor our services to suit you.

There can also be that nagging feeling that you may not have selected the right lawyer to act for you: one who is really focused on Will Disputes.
