STEP QLD Roundtable - A members' only event - 20 August 2020
Our August Roundtable, a members-only free event
Join us for a discussion about balancing competing curly questions in family provision applications. In the recent decision of Niebour-Pott v Pott, the competing issues included the applicants’ significant disabilities and what was really needed for their support; balancing testamentary provision against NDIS entitlements to avoid inadvertent disadvantage; dissipation of estate funds on long-running (adjunct) litigation; false statements of assets in affidavits sworn by one of the applicants; competing claims of adult children with disabilities, able-bodied adult children and the widow; and estrangement between the testator and the applicants.
Caite Brewer and Jeff Otto were on opposing sides of this litigation, and will facilitate a discussion about this balancing exercise and how it can be presented and considered. Can cases like this be resolved by negotiation, or is a trial inevitable?
Venue: Wherever you are, this event is remote-access only via Zoom
