Hong Kong Probate Lawyer

The work of this department is divided into two parts: non-contentious and contentious.

The non-contentious part involves advice and assistance to clients in planning the disposal of their personal assets. The services a Hong Kong wills lawyer provides will ensure that the assets of clients could be used in a way that best accords with their intention and properly provide for the welfare of those entitled to the assets. Services provided include:

  • Advice on inheritance law and procedures
  • Drafting wills
  • Application for grant of probate and distribution of assets thereafter

The Hong Kong probate lawyers also handle contentious probate matters including:

  • Making/defending application for dependant persons, children or widows under the Inheritance (Provisions for Family and Dependants) Ordinance
  • Challenging/defending validity of wills
  • Claiming/defending entitlements of illegitimate children and concubines
  • Taking/defending actions for improper administration of estate
