Divorce is a very personal matter and it affects you and your family. Divorce proceedings need not be acrimonious or too costly if you are well prepared. We help families proceed in a collaborative manner, to agree on the reasons for divorce and ancilliaries (division of assets and care of children).
Probate and Letters of Administration
Whether or not there is a Will, the family would want to consider starting the legal process of appointing the legal representative for the estate of the deceased. Once Probate or Letter of Administration is granted, the family will be able to transfer assets to the beneficaries. We guide families along each step of the way.
Mental Capacity Act applications
Where the patient has no LPA, and the family needs to manage the affairs of a patient so that they can be taken care of e.g. medical care and bills, the family may wish to have access to their bank accounts, or CPF funds or be able to rent or sell property to help defray the costs of medical treatment, medication, nursing care and other medical needs etc. The family’s best option is to apply to Family Justice Court to be appointed a Deputy to take care of such matters under the MCA. We advise families on how to prepare for the Court application, and what is required in the medical report to satisfy the court and minimise the time and cost taken.
