Service Details

Probate Registry

High Court of Abia State provides probate services. These services form part of the Family Division of the High Court and the registry deals with the ‘non-contentious’ probate business (where there is no dispute about the validity of a will or entitlement to take a grant), and issues grants of representation which are known as either:

• Probate (when the deceased person left a valid will and an executor is acting)
• Letters of administration of will (when a person has left a valid will, but no executor is acting) OR
• Letters of administration (usually when there is no valid will).

The Probate Registry online service will streamline and automate key elements of the probate service.
