Although in our heart of hearts we always know that we will one day need to deal with the death of a parent or a loved one, it is important to remember that no amount of logic will suffice during the actual situation. Dealing with the death of a parent can be one of the most daunting and worst experiences anyone ever experiences and it is important for you to keep in mind that the death of a parent is to be expected.  You might be surprised to find that even though you are an adult, you will experience feelings of being abandoned in the event of the death of a loved one and it is important for the logical side of your brain to convince yourself that these types of occurrences are normal and that everyone experiences them at some point of their lives. Even in cases where you have been expecting it, it can still be a very hard and difficult experience to deal with and it is important for you to stay among friends and family during those first few days and ask for as much help as you can get.

Laws and procedures
Unfortunately while you should be allowed to mourn the death of a parent, the law and the procedures involved with a death would mean that you will be extremely busy those first few days organizing the funeral and even possibly contesting a will, you will never really know what to expect until you are in the situation. During this time, it would be useful for you to ask a friend or another relative to come in and help you to deal with all the paperwork, especially if the friend you have chosen to help you has experienced such a thing before. In the case of contesting a will in Sydney, you will be given a few days or maybe even a week after the will has been officially read or you to voice your objection however, it is best to have a lawyer on your side where you will be able to get all the information needed so that you do not miss any deadlines. It is vital that you let yourself grieve and that you take time off after everything has been sorted to be alone and let yourself accept what has just happen. During this time, it is important that you do not allow anyone to belittle you or make you feel bad about how you are feeling during this very difficult time.
