Practical Guidance: The ‘how-to’ of legal practice.

Practical Guidance Succession

Practical Guidance Succession is a 'how-to' resource for lawyers dealing with succession law matters.


The module provides step-by-step guidance and best practice advice – supported by on-point cases, legislation, checklists, forms, precedents, tools and trusted LexisNexis deep research materials.


Use Practical Guidance Succession as a framework for matters involving wills, estate administration, contested proceedings, family provision, costs and tax. Practical Guidance Succession covers all jurisdictions in Australia except Northern Territory.


Authored by experienced practitioners, Practical Guidance is like having an expert at your fingertips.


 What topics are covered?

  • Wills
  • Grant of probate (testacy)
  • Grant of letters of administration (intestacy)
  • Other grants of administration
  • Estate administration
  • Family provision orders
  • Contested proceedings
  • Costs and taxes
  • Elder law

When dealing with a deceased estate, I believe that it is vital to assist the grieving family/executor by providing advice that is both timely and accurate. The LexisNexis Practical Guidance service will allow practitioners to easily access the information they require to do just that.

Together with the Governance Institute of Australia, the LexisNexis Practical Guidance team have developed a white paper that tackles this issue.
