Explanations for Violent Behavior

The committee spent a good deal of time reviewing what is known about why people behave violently. Much has been written on this complex subject and it was clear to us that we should beware superficial explanations. Bearing in mind that the risk of violence depends on the interaction of a number of possible factors, we identified what we regarded as the most significant of these. As far as the…

Have You Been Left Out Of A Will?

Don't lose hope just yet! Your lawyer may be able to help by what is known as a Family Provision Claim to the Court. (Traditionally these claims were known as ‘Testator & Family Maintenance’ Claims).

Why do you need to make or review your Will?

Family Law January 12, 2016

Why do you need to make or review your Will?

In basic terms, if you do not make a Will then you have no control over what happens to your Estate when you die.
