We have a client who died without a will in San Francisco. None of his children are residents so a local lawyer is acting as administrator. Client has been accepted as domiciled in SF by HMRC but had a sum of money held with Lloyds who are requiring a UK grant.
We applied on behalf of the beneficiary daughter but Probate registry cited rule 30(1)(a) and require us to apply for an order on behalf of the person having a right to administer the estate in SF. They are happy to do this but given the inability to speak to the probate registry I am having difficulty finding out the form of application and supporting documents required. Has anyone made an application of this time and can you point me in the direction of the documents required.
