Administrative support

To ease your goodbyes

Once the funeral is over, the family is faced with many administrative procedures that must be dealt with in a timely manner. With knowledge built on five years of experience and specialized research in administrative management following a death, Separate Ways can relieve you and your loved ones of these tedious procedures and provide efficient support.


Delegate administrative tasks

In times of mourning, it is normal that you should want to focus on your grief rather than on tedious administrative tasks in relation to the passing of your loved one? You may not even have the time to deal with this cumbersome process or maybe you and your family are abroad and not able to manage it all from a distance. Many people do not like to deal with the administrative side of things and prefer to focus on their personal and professional lives. Others are bewildered by these burdensome steps and are further at a loss because it was their deceased spouse who managed the estate and papers.

You can delegate the entirety of this process to Separate Ways or request our services for singular tasks. Separate Ways offers personalized advice if you need specific information related to your situation (moving assistance for example). Our support allows you to focus on what you consider essential. We ensure that tasks are handled professionally and transparently.

Making a financial gain

In addition to saving you precious time, our support saves you money or even recovers some of it. Indeed, by accelerating the cancellation of certain contracts, Separate Ways asks the various institutions for statements in order to be reimbursed on the prepaid expenses. This also avoids unnecessary reminder fees or additional charges.

Avoid stress or tension

In a period of intense emotions, impartial support can help foster understanding, find compromises and give you the chance to delegate certain time-consuming tasks.

Here is a list of the main tasks that Separate Ways can take on. We also have a complete list of administrative procedures with more than forty points to cover.
