I have had contacted the QLD probate, but the thing is the spelling of the name, as it could be long list of variety of spellings, so how to get a list of the people who died with no family in Australia, to get the right person's from.
The Embassy had advised the beneficiary relative in Egypt that the passed away person had a will in QLD already, but all what we got is the name which could be different spell, how to get to this list ?

Good Morning

Do you know who applied for probate?

What embassy advised the beneficiary? How did the embassy know?

Expert:  Leon replied 1 year ago.

You have to get the information from the embassy and then apply.

If you can get a copy of the Death Certificate this will make it easier for you to get the probate.
