Supreme Court of Western Australia

Filing your application with the Court

You must file your application at the Supreme Court Registry on level 11, David Malcolm Justice Centre, 28 Barrack Street, Perth. You may also post your application but as you are posting original documents we strongly recommend you use registered post and take a photocopy of all documents before you send them. The postal address is:

Supreme Court of Western Australia Level 11, David Malcolm Justice Centre 28 Barrack Street Perth WA 6000

You will need to pay a filing fee for the application. The fee is available on the Probate fees page.

Payment may be made by cash, cheque, Visa, Mastercard or eftpos. Cheques should be made payable to Supreme Court of Western Australia.

The Court will not return the original will. Instead the Court will attach a photocopy of the will to the grant of Probate or Letters of Administration with the Will Annexed. The Court retains the original will as a public document in safe custody.

Processing your application

Your application will be considered by a Registrar of the Court. The Court aims to process applications within 10 business days of receiving application although complex applications may take longer and the process may be delayed from time-to-time.
