Statutory Will Applications: A Practical Guide examines the statutory regime that enables the Australian courts to make wills for persons who lack testamentary capacity. Statutory will applications are becoming more common, and this trend is expected to continue given Australia's ageing population, and because of the potential benefits that they can provide as a remedy to the consequences of loss of testamentary capacity. This comprehensive guide written by Richard Williams and Sam McCullough considers the approach taken to date by the courts of the various Australian jurisdictions, and explains the process and considerations involved in preparing an application. The steps required and considerations for an interested party to an application are also outlined.Given that statutory wills have the potential to be utilised as a tool in estate-planning and tax-planning, this text is likely to be of practical assistance not only to lawyers, but also to accountants and financial planners advising private clients.
