Looking After One Another: Family provision laws in South Australia

The South Australian Law Reform Institute (SALRI) wants your views on whether the current laws that govern who can contest a will when a family member dies are working fairly or should be changed.

Should court be able to change who gets property after a person dies, even when they leave a clear will? Should adult children be able to make a claim that they didn't receive a fair share of their parent's estate? These are some of the questions we want to hear your thoughts on.

SALRI was asked to look into these laws, which are contained in the Inheritance (Family Provision) Act 1972 (SA), by the Attorney General. After conducting research, working with experts and listening to your views, SALRI will present its independent recommendations to the South Australian Government who will then make up its own mind about whether the laws should change.
