Our case is this. Father has been estranged from family for years, lived in NSW and recently passed away. He made a will but we understood he did not get legal advice. We are overseas residents. What are our rights in terms of the Family Provision Act in Australia? Do we need legal representation in Australia? We understand that there are five beneficiaries, two are unrelated, ie friends, (one fixed amount specified in will, the other a 33% of the balance), one by marriage (33% of the balance) and two of us are his children but not living in Australia (17% each of the balance). All other beneficiaries are Australian residents.
