Probate service in Israel

What is probate for a will?

A probate order for will is granted by the registrar’s office or a religious court in Israel. It confers the legal validity of a will, followed by the death of the will drafter. The people applying for probate order can be among the heirs as well as any other person interested in the execution of the will (such as siblings, spouse or parents). The application for probate order is published in a public newspaper and includes submitting objections for obtaining the probate order through the registrar’s office.

If the deceased person’s will, relates to some part of his property or assets, it will only be valid to the property and assets mentioned. The remaining estate property and assets will be distributed according to the law governing inheritance. The distribution by the state of Israel will be carried out through the Law of Succession.

There’s no prescription period after obtaining a probate order because it is the same as getting a judgment by the court. Moreover, a probate order can be applied for, and obtained at any time. All you have to do is go to the registrar’s office, apply for it, and get it through the computerized database.
