Heath Ledger estate to go to probate

The Daily Telegraph in Australia reports that the estate of actor Heath Ledger will soon enter a probate court, with his young daughter standing to be the main beneficiary. The estate, valued around $20 million, will have to be divided up in court as the parents and his sisters are technically the main beneficiaries.

While Ledger left everything to his parents and three sisters, it is understood they have legal advice that under WA law, the toddler is entitled to the lion’s share.

However her mother, actor Michelle Williams, will have to officially lodge a claim with the court supported by an affidavit which could end up in the public domain, legal experts said.
