Estate Disputes

You may have heard of it, but what actually is it?

In Queensland, there was a perception for a long time that the estate covered the costs for both the successful and unsuccessful parties when claiming against the estate.

If you are considering claiming against an estate it is important to act sooner rather than later. The court in Queensland will refuse to hear your claim if you have unexplained delays.

The Succession Act 1991 in Queensland provides that if someone is dissatisfied with the terms of a Will, or if the deceased did not have a Will and someone thinks the rules of intestacy are unfair, they can apply to the Court for ‘proper maintenance and support’ from the estate.

Before you claim against an estate, you need to ensure that you are eligible to make a claim.
