In most cases there is no dispute as to whether a document is the last will of the deceased and probate is granted in common form without a court case.
Obtaining the grant now involves registering for (either personally or through a solicitor), and uploading relevant information into CourtSA online. For more information see the Probate Rule, Form and Procedure Changes on the Courts Administration Authority website.
The filing fee varies from $853 to $3410, depending on the gross value of the deceased estate (as of 1 July 2020). See the Courts Administration Authority website for the current fees.
Where there is a dispute (see Contesting a will) which has been decided by the Supreme Court, the Court makes a grant of probate in solemn form.
