Succession Laws: Consultation Paper - Family Provision (html)


This consultation paper discusses problems that have arisen in the family provision jurisdiction, in particular:

•    the extent to which the current law enables people to make opportunistic or non-genuine claims on estates

•    the problem of high legal costs that are often paid out of the estate

•    the suggestion that people are dealing with their assets towards the end of their lives to frustrate the operation of family provision laws.
