We always recommend keeping your will up to date as it makes distributing your estate far easier and cost effective for your beneficiaries, particularly during what is already a hard enough time.
THE FAMILY PROVISIONS ACT 1982
If you expected to be a beneficiary of a will but have not been provided for, you may be entitled to make a claim against the distribution of any estate under the Family Provision Act 1982, provided you can clearly set out reasons as to why you should be considered a beneficiary of the deceased estate.
Golottas Solicitors can help you apply to the Supreme Court of NSW for Probate in instances where there is a valid will and you have been nominated as Executor of that will. The Supreme Court can then grant probate which authorises you to distribute the deceased estate in accordance with the provisions of the will.
Arrange a consultation with an experienced wills and probate lawyer.
