Death in the Family – The First Steps with Debbie Sage

With our main office positioned at Coolangatta on the border of Queensland and New South Wales, we have historically performed legal work in both jurisdictions for over 60 years.

There are stark differences in the law between Queensland and New South Wales which apply to many issues in estate planning, obtaining probate and particularly with respect to enduring powers of attorney. Many deceased estates have assets that straddle both jurisdictions and sometimes there can be certain tax and stamp duty advantages in the administration of the estate, depending on which state the probate is taken out in. meet our team
