    The Case Study
    The case study involves separated couples, children from prior relationships, a recent inheritance, a will completed in ignorance of a beneficiary son-in-law's separation, a pregnant de facto, an informal Will, a BFA under the microscope and more.

    Issues abound, including the status of Family Law Orders, a BFA and a Will, potential family provision and equitable claims, will construction, applicable taxation considerations as well as a smattering of ethical issues.

    Test your views and challenge your knowledge alongside our four experts as our moderator guides them through the case study.  As our panelists address the issues by answering questions posed to them by our moderator, you will find yourself wondering how you to would address the problems as they arise.
