Probate & Succession

The obtaining of a grant of probate or letters of administration is generally a prerequisite for access to, and distribution of, a deceased’s estate in Barbados, and the services of an attorney are normally necessary for this process. In our dealings with our clients, we are sensitive to the grief and emotional upset naturally experienced by a person in the challenging time of losing a loved one.

We give full advice and assistance with drafting of wills, obtaining grants of probate, letters of administration and variations thereof, resealing of letters testamentary granted in other Commonwealth jurisdictions, and with the administration of estates in Barbados.

We also provide overseas law firms with advice and expert opinions on local succession law.
