Why we offer this service
The Probate Network was launched to provide people needing probate advice with an option to talk to a local probate solicitor (for free) to ask some initial questions. The Probate Network was launched following the Founders experience of trying to find a solicitor that would answer the question “Is Probate Required?” The response of local solicitors was to only agree to answer the question if an official appointment was booked which would cost hundreds of pounds. In this instance it would have cost hundreds of pounds to be told, that probate wasn’t required.
The free advice we offer is genuine
Upon completing the complimentary consultation, individuals may come to the realisation that they have the ability to complete the necessary paperwork and navigate the probate process without the assistance of a professional. However, it is also possible that they may require the aid of an expert in this field. Regardless of the outcome, the 20-minute consultation provides three critical pieces of information.
Firstly, it provides an initial assessment of the individual’s unique needs, based on their specific circumstances. This assessment is crucial in determining the most effective course of action for navigating the probate process.
Secondly, the consultation can result in an estimate of the potential costs associated with professional probate assistance. This information allows individuals to make an informed decision about whether or not they wish to pursue professional help.
Lastly, the consultation gives individuals the opportunity to evaluate their comfort level with the lawyer on the other end of the phone should they need further support. Probate can be an emotionally taxing experience, and it is essential to have a professional who can provide guidance and support, while also establishing a rapport with the client.
