My brother died and my sister is executor. He didn't leave

Customer Question

My brother died and my sister is executor. He didn't leave in writing what he wanted done with his ashes. My sister has decided to scatter his ashes without any family member (including his daughter) knowing when or where this will be done. Can I legally stop her from doing this? Many thanks

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

I am sorry to hear about your loss

You each have the same standing when it comes to his ashes. If you wish to stop her you can take action in court and get in injunction.

You have to move quickly on it because once it is done there is nothing the courts can do for you.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further
