Customer Question
I want advice on...

I want advice on how to claim for property share from the estate of my my now deceased de-facto partner.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

In Wanaka.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, this is my initial enquiry.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Perhaps. We were separated for the 6 months before her death, which was in March this year.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
