Inheritance law in its broadest aspect has two separate approaches; one where the deceased has left a will and the other where the deceased has not left a will or has left a will that is declared null and void. The complexities in dealing with all the legal aspects surrounding inheritance are best dealt with using qualified legal assistance. The Zelcer Law Firm is well versed in all aspects of Inheritance Law and can provide the correct and pertinent advice as well as assist beneficiaries, or those who believe that they should be beneficiaries, through the entire process.

While we offer our services in the all above, we will always be able to assist and advise with regard to all inheritance law matters not mentioned. Most people are not aware of the details of inheritance law and how it might affect them. When a close relative or other person from whom you think you have a right to inherit has passed away it is most important to consult an attorney versed in inheritance law to ascertain your rights.

It is important to understand that until all the procedures and applications have been completed and submitted with the necessary fees and an Inheritance Order made, no assets in the estate can be distributed or dealt with in any way. Section 13A of the Inheritance Law sets out the entire legal procedure necessary for the issuing of the inheritance order and at the Zelcer Law Firm we are well qualified and experienced in these matters and will ensure that all your rights and entitlements are properly taken care of.
