Changes to the Administration Amendment Bill 2018
Reform of the intestacy provisions in Western Australia is long overdue. The Administration Amendment Bill was introduced into State Parliament on 27 June 2018 and covers what happens when a person dies without a will or intestate or omits some property from their will. Join us for a discussion on why this Bill is needed, the benefits it may bring, what is included and how it will work.
Further Intestacy and Succession Law Reform discussion areas
Is it now time to review other areas of succession law which need amendment in light of progress in DNA testing and legislative changes in other States.
ADR for Family Business Succession and Estate Planning
Michael Hollingdale has been developing a structure for legal and other advisors to assist clients in managing family relationships relating to succession and estate planning so as to avoid disputes arising or escalating before or following a death.
Facilitation and mediation are underused in this area particularly as estates and family businesses have become more complex and substantial.
Both these processes could be called upon more often and at an earlier stage to assist in avoiding expensive and emotional battles over family business succession and deceased estates.
