Ask Your Own Australia Law Question

Dear customer, in relation to your important matter, the executor is required to act diligently and responsibly with the deceased. Generally, unless the will of person details how their body and funeral and related family matters are to be handled, it is at the discretion of the executor.

Where the executor has acted in the manner you have described, this is both improper and subject to the circumstance, a claim may be raised against the executor for the improper handling of the deceased.

If you would like to discuss this matter further by telephone, I welcome you to request those services.

If you have any further questions, I would be pleased to answer those for you.

Please don’t forget to leave positive feed back by rating for 5 stars.

Kind regards
John Melis
