Marriage, defined in section 5(1) of the Marriage Act 1961 (Cth), means “the union of two (2)
people to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life”.

A person is in a De Facto relationship, defined in section 4AA(1) of the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth), with another person if “the persons are not legally married to each other, the persons are not related by family, and having regards to all the circumstances of their relationship, they have a relationship as a couple living together on a genuine domestic basis”.

Wills, Probate & Estate matters

Three interrelated areas of the law deal with your property, in the widest meaning of the word, after your death. The key word being “after” your death. Any asset that is co-owned as “joint tenants” does not part of your Estate and is not included in your Will.

A Will is a document that contains the testamentary intentions of the deceased. It is recommended that every adult should have a valid Will. During your face to face appointment, after listening to your wishes, we discuss how we can prepare you Will so as to meet your needs and take into account your religious and/or cultural requirements.

We explain that you must properly consider the whole pool of assets and all persons you should consider in your Will. All there persons are called “eligible persons” and are able to make a claim against your Estate. These Estate disputes reduce the amount of the Estate and care is needed to reduce the risk of claims by eligible persons.

Probate is an order of the Supreme Court of NSW that confirms that your Will is valid and that the executor you have appointed in your Will has the rights and obligations under the law to properly distribute your Estate in accordance with your wishes in your Will. This is what is meant by a “sealed
grant of Probate”.
