Other organisations that can help

Victoria Law Foundation

The Victoria Law Foundation has a free publication, Your Will: A guide to making a Will in Victoria to help you make a Will.

Law Institute of Victoria

The Law Institute of Victoria's Legal Referral Service can put you in touch with a Wills and estate solicitor. With a referral letter from the Law Institute, participating law firms will see clients free of charge for up to the first 30 minutes.

If you book an interview, write your questions down beforehand, so you get as much out of the free 30 minutes as possible. If you discuss getting further help from the lawyer, make sure you know how much it will cost.

Probate Office of the Supreme Court

The Probate Office deals with all applications for Grants of Representation of deceased estates in Victoria. Registry staff may also provide advice and assistance to persons seeking to obtain representation in small estate matters.

Fitzroy Legal Service

You can buy the How to apply for probate kit from Fitzroy Legal Service.
