PROBATE GENEALOGY

We have a wealth of in-house as well as national and international research resources at our disposal and the expertise to leverage these tools to provide a seamless global service.

All members of our research team hold current memberships with the Association of Professional Genealogists, adhering strictly to the Association’s code of ethics.

See Our People for more information.

 

We have been finding missing beneficiaries and establishing next of kin entitlements upon intestacy for the legal profession, public and private trustees, executors and administrators in Australia and around the world for over 30 years.

Our knowledge of intestacy provisions in each Australian jurisdiction guides the forensic approach we take and the appropriately tailored and fully referenced genealogical reports we deliver.

GLOBAL REACH

As well as our dedicated research team in Australia and New Zealand, our global alliances and networks extend our research capabilities to nearly every corner of the globe.

OUR SERVICES

FEES

Our competitive hourly rates present a cost-effective outsourcing solution for legal practitioners and their clients. No-obligation fee estimates can be given based on an outline of the scope required, for referral to clients.

Our time is accounted for in fully itemised invoices and all disbursements are charged at cost.
