A hundred years after the introduction of family provision legislation in Queensland, the costs position in contested matters requires careful thought, especially in small estates. This month’s Proctor cover story takes a close look at the issue and reminds practitioners of the necessity of taking a realistic approach. Also this month, we report on Green & Ors v Pearson  QCA 110, which clearly illustrates the consequences of filing non-compliant pleadings and the impact on an application to withdraw deemed admissions in those circumstances. You’ll find these articles and much more in the August edition of Proctor – and don’t forget to check it out using our new interactive viewer!
