Jersey Probate Law

Parslows are Jersey probate specialists.

Probate is the legal process where the estate of a deceased person is dealt with. An executor will be named to administer the estate where a person has made a will. If there is no will, the next of kin will be appointed by the probate court as administrators instead. Probate provides the executor or the administrator legal authority to administer the estate.

We work with executors or administrators in Jersey, the UK and worldwide to assist with Jersey Probate applications. The type of Jersey probate application and the documentation required will depend on where the deceased was domiciled.
