I’ve received a Notice of Intended Claim: What are my obligations?
The death of a family member is always difficult, but it is made all the more difficult when you discover that you have not been fairly represented in the deceased’s Will. The law has evolved the understanding that occasions arise where people who would in normal circumstances be a beneficiary under the Will are not sufficiently provided for. When this occurs, the Court can grant a Family Provision Order to redistribute the benefits conferred by the Will. Family Provision Orders are granted under the Succession Act 2006 (NSW).
