The late Mr Rathswohl had 3 adult children. Less than a year before he passed away, the late Mr Rathswohl changed his Will preferring his youngest daughter above his other 2 children and left that child his house. The youngest daughter had also been appointed Attorney for her father and transferred almost all the monies in her father’s accounts and Term deposits into her own name. The effect was that our client and his other sister received nothing from their late father’s estate.

I have been informed that my father has passed away and that he died without any Will, what happens now?
I have been divorced for a couple of years and need to now get the rest of my affairs in order. I currently have a Will with my ex-husband and he is the beneficiary. As we are now divorced, do I have to change the Will, or does the divorce automatically exclude him? More
My husband has recently passed and hadn’t left any beneficiary on his superannuation. As his Will was a mirror Will of mine, does that automatically entitle me to his super too?
