The Citizens Advise Bureau of WA (CAB) and the WA Family Law Pathways Network have produced a new fact sheet about the interaction between Family Law and Succession Law. Drawing on real-life examples and commonly asked questions about cases where Family Law and Succession Law both come into play, this fact sheet highlights the close relationship between these two areas of law.
This fact sheet aims to educate service providers about the area of intersection between Family Law and Succession Law, help answer some common questions clients might have, aid practitioners in recognising when clients need to seek legal advice and guide them to make appropriate referrals.
Thefact sheet can be downloaded below or accessed via the CAB website.
The WA Family Law Pathways Network acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land and waters on which we live and work, and pays our respects to Elders past, present and future for they carry the cultural wisdom, the stories, the traditions and dreaming. With a commitment to reconciliation, we acknowledge the ongoing impact of past policies and practices, and commit our endeavours to creating a just society and sector that celebrates the ongoing resilience and self-determination of our first peoples and communities.
