Usually a grant of probate or administration will be applied for in the appropriate Court of the state, territory or country where the deceased person was residing when they died which will generally be the location where the majority of the deceased's assets will need to be collected and distributed.
If a deceased person owned assets in different states or territories of Australia, or in certain countries, then it is possible to have a grant issued by a Court in one jurisdiction recognised in another state, territory or country. This process of recognising the grant made in the other state, territory or country is called "resealing".
The process for resealing differs from place to place but generally follows a similar process.
Resealing is considered a complex probate matter and it is wise to obtain legal advice.
