What is a Statutory Will?
A statutory will is a will made by the Supreme Court for a person who does not have capacity to make a will.
Those persons can include minors, those with disabilities (whether they are minors or adults) and those with impaired capacity (ie those reaching the later stages of life).
Generally, statutory Wills are applied for when the intestacy rules provide for an outcome that is not desirable.
