Worldwide Lawyers is a UK based company with a network of recommended English-speaking lawyers around the world who can assist you in dealing with a deceased estate where there are assets overseas.

Dealing with the administration of assets abroad requires a different process depending on the country in which the assets are located.

In some countries the process of ‘Resealing a Grant of Probate’ is required. Worldwide Lawyers regularly assists legal professionals, executors and beneficiaries across the world with resealing Grants of Probate in the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Cyprus
  • Malaysia
  • New Zealand
  • South Africa
  • United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland)

We can also assist in obtaining Grants of Probate in the British Isles of  Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

In other countries where the process of ‘resealing’ is not available, another estate administration/ probate process will be required. Worldwide lawyers regularly assist where there are estate assets in other countries too. Feel free to contact us to find out how and where we can help.

Contact Worldwide Lawyers’ free service on 0044 1244 470 339 (or 01244 470 339 if calling from within the UK) or email us at info@worldwidelawyers.co.uk. You can also get in touch using our Contact Form on the top right hand side of this webpage.

Our helpful representatives will be happy to provide you with any initial guidance you may need and, if required, put you in touch with an English-speaking specialist lawyer in the relevant country.

The lawyer will be able to advise you of the resealing (or other) process and provide you with a no-obligation quote to obtain the reseal and arrange for the assets to be sold or transferred to the executors or beneficiaries of the estate if required.
