Who Inherits Prince’s Diamonds and Pearls?

By Laura Di Cristofaro, Solicitor at Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky Lawyers

9 May 2016

Despite achieving the status of music royalty, Prince’s untimely death at the young age of 57 years has once again highlighted the simple fact that no one can avoid the emotional and financial hardship invariably suffered by a deceased's family when the deceased dies without a Will.

Whilst hard to believe that a superstar of Prince’s status would not execute a single document to say who inherits his wealth,  his family have filed papers to declare that Prince died without a Will.

The Will to Challenge

By Laura Di Cristofaro, Solicitor at Bowen Buchbinder Vilensky Lawyers

31 March 2016

Modern life and the complexities that come with it mean that we must consider our estate planning very carefully.   However, with the increase in conflicting moral obligations to spouses, de factos, children, step children and other loved ones, even the most careful Willmaker may find that there is someone who feels that their Will is unfair and that they should have received an inheritance or a larger inheritance.  It is also possible that a relative may feel (for whatever reason) that, where a person dies without making a Will, the laws of intestacy do not provide that relative with adequate provision. 

The Family Provision Act 1972 (WA)Continue Reading
