Family Provision Claims in NSW

While you might reasonably expect that if you make a valid will your estate will be distributed as specified in your will (unless there are exceptional circumstances), this is not, in fact, the case.

The freedom to leave assets by your will is subject to one exception – that you must first fulfil what has been described as a “moral duty” to make adequate provision in your will for the maintenance, education or advancement in life of those people for whom the community would expect such provision to be made.
