How do you apply for grant of probate in QLD?

The simplest way is to call us - we'll get started with just one phone call.

However, if you're going to DIY - here's a general overview of the process.
Before you can actually make an application for probate, the law requires that you first make public, in a prescribed manner, your intent to apply for grant of probate.
To satisfy this requirement, you must advertise a notice of intent, and serve a copy of the notice of intent on the Public Trustee of Queensland. There are specific legal requirements for the content of the advertisement, as well as where it can be published.
After the statutory period has elapsed, you can prepare and file your application in the Supreme Court of Queensland.
Typically an application would include an affidavit of the executor, affidavit of publication, and the application itself annexing the original will and death certificates.
There is a prescribed form of application, and statutory requirements for both the affidavit of the executor and the affidavit of publication. Failure to meet the statutory requirements can result in a failed application for grant of probate, or lengthy delays.
