Easy Succession

To ease your goodbyes

Once the funeral is over, the family is faced with numerous administrative procedures that must be completed within a rather short period of time. With knowledge built on nearly five years of experience and specialized research in administrative management in Geneva following a death, Separate Ways can relieve you and your loved ones of the tedious procedures and provide efficient support.

Delegate the management of administrative tasks

What could be more normal than to want to focus on your grief rather than on managing the ongoing process? As an only child, you may not have the time to deal with this cumbersome process, or you or the rest of your family may be abroad and cannot manage at a distance. Some people who are not very organized do not like to take care of the administration and prefer to devote themselves to their personal and professional life. Others are helpless in the face of these cumbersome procedures and have no experience in the field because their deceased spouse was taking care of it and they have no one else to do it for them.

The delegation may also be partial. You can call on Separate Ways for personalized advice if you need specific information related to your situation (moving assistance for example) that would allow you to concentrate on certain tasks. This special and trustworthy contact ensures that tasks are handled professionally and transparently.

A financial gain

In addition to saving invaluable time, this support allows you to save money or even recover as much as possible. Indeed, by accelerating the cancellation of certain contracts, Separate Ways asks the various institutions for statements for the reimbursement of prepaid expenses. This support also makes it possible to forget about payments that would result in unnecessary reminder fees or additional charges.

Avoid overload or voltage

In a period of intense emotions, neutral accompaniment promotes understanding and gives you the choice to delegate certain time-consuming tasks.

The following is a list of the main tasks that Separate Ways can handle. We also have a complete list of administrative procedures with over forty items to cover.
