Can A Child Be Left Out Of A Will?

A child can be left out of a will however, the child (or anyone else deemed eligible) can make a claim on an estate under the ‘family provision claim’.

There are specific criteria that need to be met when making a family provision claim, so getting expert advice is crucial to ensure you know if you are eligible and how best to make the claim to ensure you get what you’re entitled to.

There are multiple factors that the court is required to consider if a family member is left out of a will and they are making a family provision claim – some of these factors include: 

    • The relationship between the child and the parent including the nature of the relationship
    • The nature and extent of the parent’s estate
    • The financial resources, earning capacity and present and future financial needs of the child
    • Whether any other person is liable to support the child
    • The character and conduct of the child (or any other person) before and after the death of their parent
    • Any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander customary laws that may be relevant

    There are other factors that the courts are required to consider – our team are across all these factors and are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to navigating these in court.
