Marriage and The Law

You don’t need to think about the law on your wedding day but at some stage before you wed, it’s a good idea to consider and discuss the legal effects of marriage.

One stop shopping… In addition to being a marriage celebrant I am a lawyer employed with Carty & Cox, Solicitors in Bellingen. While I am an Accredited Specialist in Family Law I am also very interested in elder law. I regularly advise clients on the legal consequences of marriage, draft wills and act for families in obtaining grants of probate and managing deceased estates. As part of my services I am happy to provide general advice in relation to the issues your family may need to consider. For instance, did you know that marriage voids your current Will unless that Will was made in contemplation of your marriage and makes specific reference to it?
