DISPUTES ON DEATH OF A LOVED ONE

It is often said, that death of a loved one is the most traumatic event that can happen. It is also said, that death can also bring out the worst in people. Both can be correct. The distribution of the property of a deceased family member generates many disputes.

The context can be challenging the Will, under a number of statutes. This includes:

•    Property (Relationships) Act;
•    Family Protection Act;
•    Law Reform (Testamentary Promises Act)

The Will itself can be challenged as to its validity.

This is a complex and specialist area of Family Law. I have specialty in providing advice in this area, and resolving issues via negotiation, mediation or litigation.
