Recent case law has thrown up some anomalies in family provision matters. What is the current position and how should you respond to recent changes is covered in this session:
  • Unusual family provision outcomes - Lodin v Lodin; Estate of Dr Mohammad Masoud Lodin [2017] NSWSC

  • The former spouse who returns to care for the former spouse prior to death
  • Is there a test for ex-spouses making family provision claims?
  • The importance of updating your will when relationships change
  • Obtaining a release of rights to prevent future claims
  • Recent trends - Despite Lodin are family provision claims becoming harder to succeed on?
  • Case update:
    • Mortimer v Lusink [2017] QCA 1
