Following a relationship breakdown, even the most well-thought-out estate plan can be vulnerable to the increasing reach of the Family Court. This session will look at options for protecting the family assets from claims in the Family Court, including:

  • The use of binding financial agreements - when should they be used and what should be included?
  • Can a BFA prevent a family provision claim?
  • Family and testamentary trusts – Family Court scrutiny and court orders, assessing “effective control” and other aspects
  • Managing and structuring loans from parents to child
  • The use of a deed of release in property settlements to prevent estate claims down track
  • Case law update
