Substantive Law: 2.0
Family Law – Impact of Death on Family Law Disputes
The death of a party or related party in family law disputes can often be challenging to manage and can seem complex and confusing. Practitioners are required to resolve issues surrounding control and division of property in the context of a relationship breakdown, death or incapacity.
In this special seminar, you will learn about the intersection between these two areas of law and our presenter will offer a roadmap discussing:
- When family law proceedings should be issued;
- What happens if a party dies before family law proceedings are issued;
- What happens when a spouse loses capacity prior to a relationship breakdown;
- Who is appointed as administrator when a married but separated spouses dies intestate;
- The impact of death on family law orders;
- Executors costs in family law proceedings;
It is essential that family law practitioners understand how the areas overlap, particularly in complex situations, in order to properly advise their clients. A session not to be missed!
