Who can apply for letters of administration?

The law in QLD says that if there’s no executor named in the will, or that person can’t act as executor, the first priority to apply for letters of administration is given to a surviving spouse. If they can’t or won’t act, the sequence of priority is as follows – children, then grandchildren or great grandchildren, then parents, then brothers and sisters, then children of deceased brothers and sisters, then grandparents, then uncles and aunts, then first cousins, then anyone else the court may appoint.
