This book is a current and fresh analysis of family provision law around Australia. It deals with one of the most highly litigated areas of succession law, one which continues to be characterised by state differences, despite the movement towards uniformity. Increasingly, practitioners may be called on to advise on family provision claims outside their own jurisdictions. They will be aware that the legislation in each other jurisdiction varies from their own, often in subtle and unexpected ways. At the same time, superannuation death benefit disputes could give rise to parallel actions on different principles before different tribunals. These factors, combined with case law that is characterised by judicial discretion and decisions which are fact-specific, make for a challenging area of practice.
