Learn how to avoid an estate challenge. The build-up of an individual’s wealth can be reversed by a successful challenge by a hostile domestic partner, child or other family member, utilising the provisions of the Australian federal family law provisions or the state and territory succession law provisions.  So often, these challenges could have been thwarted had forward planning occurred and a defensive strategy been put in place.
