My mum's just passed away and she has investments in the Netherlands of around EUR 30,000. How do I deal with that in terms of getting probate in NSW?

Thanks, Mim

Depending on Dutch law you probably need to get the NSW probate sealed in the Netherlands. As I understand it the process is similar to seeking probate here, you'll need a lawyer over there working for you, and he will need to submit your NSW probate to a court there to be stamped.

Check with the Netherlands embassy in Canberra as to the process. see contact form
