 Recorded Webinar: Preventing Family Fall Out at the Will Preparation Stage

Recorded: 27th May 2021
Duration: 65 minutes

Where there’s a will there’s a family, and it’s at the will preparation stage that a testator needs to carefully consider how they want their assets to be distributed as well as how their wishes may be received by the family. This session will provide practitioners with drafting skills to pre-empt as far as possible challenges to their client’s wishes, including consideration of:

  • Protecting special needs children – is a trust the answer?
  • The stay at home child – will the house be sold from under him?
  • Estranged family members – the importance of evidence for exclusion from the inheritance, case study: Reg Grundy’s will challenge
  • Arrangements in the event of marriage breakdowns
  • Protecting gifts to charities from challenges
  • Are inter vivos gifts sufficient to preclude a successful challenge? The Bob Hawke case
  • Family agreements and other strategies for heading off claims.
