Application handling process

Once your application has been reviewed and received after being correctly submitted, the Inheritance Registrar Secretariat passes the details on for publication in the records and newspaper.

The application is passed on for handling by the Assistant Registrar or an Attorney General representative at the offices of the Custodian General. You may be required to supply additional details and information.

If one of the heirs is a minor, or the heir has been appointed a legal guardian, or an application to appoint a legal guardian for an heir has been made, the application will be passed on for handling by the Assistant Registrar or an Attorney General representative at the offices of the Custodian General.

After the application has been processed by the Assistant Registrar or an Attorney General representative at the offices of the Custodian General, an inheritance order will be granted. If the Assistant Registrar is not authorized to grant the inheritance order, according to section 67a of the Inheritance Law – 1965, the application will be passed on to the Family Courts for handling. The Succession Order is a digital order, which will be sent to the email address of the person who submitted the application or to his representative.

 The Succession Order is also sent to relevant government ministries, banks and  insurance companies. I It will therefore not be necessary to present the Succession Order to  these entities. The following entities and government ministries work in cooperation with the Registrar:

 The Land Registration and Settlement of Rights Department (the Land Registry Office), the Israel Lands Authority, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Israel Tax Authority, the Israel Corporations Authority, banks and insurance companies. Once you have received the digital order, it is recommended that you keep it on your computer as a file for future use. The Registrar  does not issue printed orders, and it is not possible to receive printed copies of orders from the offices of the Registrar .

 As a rule, a Succession Order should be issued within 40 days from the date of the completed submission of the application for the order (including the period of the publication in the newspaper). Should the application be forwarded  to the Counsel for the Attorney General, his initial response should be given within 30 days from the date on which the application was forwarded. In such event, as a rule, the Succession Order will be issued within 50 days. Should the completion of documents be required, the documents shall be completed through the Registrar  Online – the System for Identifying Files, Performing Actions and Completing Documents. Any delay in the response to the request for the completion of documents or a request for further details will delay the handling of the application. Receiving a Copy of a Digital Order To receive a copy of an order that has been issued by the Registrar , go to the website of the Registrar  Online ,submit an application for an electronic copy of an order and pay  the appropriate fee. If you are in possession of the original file of the digital order that was sent to you, you will be able to use it, and there is no need to request an additional order. The Registrar for Matters of Succession does not issue printed orders and it is not possible to receive copies of orders from the offices of the Registrar for Matters of Succession

Relevant laws and provisions

Wills lawyers are lawyers who specialize in the preparation of wills

It should be remembered that throughout their years of work, wills lawyers are lawyers who specialize in the preparation of wills, as well as familiar with legal procedures that are conducted for the purpose of protecting wills as well as representation in objections against wills. Choosing will lawyers when deciding to write a will can sometimes tip the scales in the trial of protecting the will.

The choice of which way to draw up the will is subject to the absolute choice of the testator. Remember that only through a will, written in accordance with the rules of the law, can a person know for sure that after his death his property will be done exactly according to his wishes.

If a person did not make a will during his lifetime, then his property will be distributed according to law. It is recommended to contact a wills lawyer, whose specialty is this, in order to assist in drawing up a will. A lawyer who drafts a will and is skilled in doing so knew how to draft a will that will be able to fend off any future objections to the will that may be filed.

Choosing an inheritance lawyer what is recommended to do?

There can be no dispute that an inheritance lawyer will accompany you in a procedure which is complex both emotionally and professionally. One of the things I recommend to my clients to do is to read recommendations on the Google network about an inheritance lawyer that you wish to consult with. The Google network publishes customer reviews only if the customer has a recognized Google account, so you can know that the review is authentic.

Only after you have chosen a number of lawyers who seem to be able to handle the case is it recommended that you first go to the lawyer’s website and read what he wrote about inheritance matters. Finally, it is certain that you must call and set up a consultation meeting so that you can get an immediate impression of the inheritance and wills lawyer, his personal and professional abilities as well.
