  • Change in domicile following will execution - does it matter?
  • When does domicile matter? Intestacy, family provision applications and other claims
  • Do the courts have recourse to assets outside the jurisdiction of domicile? Chen v Lu [2014] NSWSC 1053; Hitchcock v Pratt [2010] NSWSC 1508
  • What happens if the beneficiary is a foreigner - which law applies to the distribution?
  • The relevance of international conventions and treaties, and international wills - consequences for practitioners.
