What Happens if you Die Just Before Signing your Will?

By Daniel Yazdani, Solicitor at Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky Lawyers

18 November 2015

The recent WA decision of Re The Estate of Allan John Young [2015] WASC 409, which was handed down on 3 November 2015, deals with the interesting question of what happens if a person unexpectedly dies before signing his or her Will.

Research suggests marriages last longer if the husband is the one who is miserable...

In a recent article in the Weekend Australian (July 18-19 2015), Bettina Arndt the well known sex therapist, journalist and clinical psychologist took a look at social science research into marriage and marriage breakdown.  She outlined how research has been used by media and other interest groups to paint men as “the bad guys” and how conclusions drawn from research which portrays negative images of men always captures the attention of the media.  She argues that the annual Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey had been inaccurately interpreted and poorly reported in the media upon its recent release.  Arndt argued that the media really only reported half the research, and that was the half least complimentary to males.
