Entitlements under a Will


Most states have legislation that gives the close family of the deceased a right to part of the deceased’s estate regardless of what is in the Will. 

The State takes the view that it has a vested interest in ensuring that people look after their close relatives from their estate in order to ensure that those relatives don’t become a financial burden on the State and as a moral imperative.

But the class of persons who can claim is narrow, and there may be a number of technical hurdles, so if you think you may have been overlooked or have received less than you think is fair, simply send in our instruction form and we’ll provide you with advice as to how we might assist you.

To review your instructions and the Will and provide written advice on a possible claim on the deceased’s estate or other challenge to the Will:  $550.00 (incl. GST).
