The Succession Act 1981 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.
A mutual will is an agreement between two will makers where they basically decide that neither of them will change their will without the other person's consent. It can be in writing or by verbal agreement.
Unfortunately, people do not always conduct themselves lawfully when appointed as a person's Power of Attorney. For example, taking money from them for your own benefit.
Undue influence is where pressure or coercion is applied to a will maker which results in the will maker leaving a will that does not reflect their wishes.
