Death of a Party During Family Court Proceedings

It is important for the deceased’s party’s legal representative to obtain advice as to what happens to the proceedings. The Court is authorised to produce documents regarding the property as it would have made when the party was alive.

The chosen executor stated in the deceased’s last will and testament is obliged to comply with any court orders, ensure legal costs are paid and instruct the lawyers involved on behalf of the deceased. Therefore, it is very important to review and/or update your will prior to the commencement of Family Court proceedings.

The outcome of your proceedings rests on what is stated in your will, don’t wait wait to review yours! Book an appointment at Linda Emery and Associates today.
