INTERNATIONAL WILLS

INTERNATIONAL WILLS Mon, 13 May 19
As we become an increasingly globalised society, it is becoming more common for people’s Estates to include foreign assets. If you have assets located overseas, whether it be real property (like a house or land) or personal property (such as bank accounts, vehicles, boats and household items), advice should be sought and careful consideration given to your foreign assets during the estate planning process in order to avoid unforeseen issues arising.

INJUNCTIONS

INJUNCTIONS Mon, 13 May 19
An injunction can be described as a court order by which one party is required to perform, or is restrained from performing, a particular act. An example is a breach of confidential information from an employer, such as a client list that is being used by a former employee to build a business in competition with the former employer. If this has occurred the employer may have a right to obtain an injunction against the former employee pending a final hearing of the dispute. Seeking and obtaining an urgent injunction can be an important step in protecting your business from loss of profits due to an unlawful act.

FAMILY PROVISION APPLICATIONS - WHO IS A 'CHILD'?

FAMILY PROVISION APPLICATIONS - WHO IS A 'CHILD'? Fri, 8 Feb 19
Following on from our previous articles highlighting the importance of having a current Will and up-to-date estate planning in place, a query that can crop up when providing clients with advice in relation to making a Will is how they can reduce the possibility of a claim being made on an estate after they have passed. The typical nuclear family (dad, mum and two kids) is no longer the most common family structure in Australia, and instead we have a diverse range of family combinations including couples with no children, couples with only one child, same-sex couples with no children, same-sex couples with one or more children who are the natural or adopted child of one of the couple, adopted children, step-children, grandparent-led families, blended families and the list goes on. It goes without saying that the general form and content of Wills have also needed to be changed to keep up with these changing family ideals and a deeper and more thorough contemplation of estate planning outcomes needs to be considered by both client and lawyer.
