Michael Willmott SC a panel member for Will Awareness Day 2012

Should people make provision in their wills for their adult children?

Most people would agree that a person making a will should provide for their spouse and any children who are young or dependant on them. But what about adult children?

We have all heard of cases where adult children have made claims in Court on the basis that either their parents did not provide for them in their wills, or did not provide enough.

Parents who wish to make a will leaving little or no provision for their children will be warned by their solicitor that they are running the risk of the child bringing a court action claiming provision, which could end up costing the estate a lot of money.

The parent might then ask the solicitor: “Why bother making a will when a will can be contested?”

Join us for a free Will Awareness Day panel discussion in Sydney on 10 August 2012.
