If you have been left out of a will and believe you are eligible to receive a share of the deceased person’s assets on the basis that you are a family member, or were in an ongoing relationship with the deceased person, Stacks are here to help you through this complex and often distressing process.
A will is an extremely important document which outlines how a deceased person’s assets and property will be divided up following their passing. Sometimes for one reason or another, family members are left out of a will, or if they have been included in the will, they may not have been left with adequate provision to be able to support themselves financially.
If this has happened to you, you may be feeling betrayed, stressed, or worried about your ability to support yourself and your children.
However, if you are a family member, or were in a close personal relationship with the deceased, there is good news - you may still be entitled to a portion of the deceased person’s estate under the Succession Act 2006 (NSW.) This Act exists to protect the rights of relations or dependants of a deceased person and ensure that they are adequately provided for.
