Case Study: Estranged Son's Claim Denied

Updated: Apr 25

In the case of Temple v Temple [2023] QDC 145, Mark Temple sought a portion of his late father's estate, which predominantly benefited his brother Carl and nephew James.

Despite being estranged from his family and possessing independent financial resources, Mark contested the will, alleging insufficient provision.

However, the court rejected his claim, determining that Mark failed to establish a necessity for additional provision beyond what had already been allocated, taking into account his financial status and estrangement from the deceased.
