On 5 June 2017, very important amendments to the Qld Succession Act came into effect that put de facto spouses and de facto stepchildren on the same footing as married spouses and stepchildren.

I am proud of these amendments, being part of the Succession Law Committee of the QLS that lobbied for this uniformity.

The amending legislation can be found here (see from s242).

The same legislation also changes the advertisement rules in relation to advertising pursuant to s67 of the Trusts Act (the call for creditors), although those amendments have not yet come into effect.  See the same link above, from s250.  The changes relate to where advertisements can be published.
