Aussie Court Allows A Text Message To Serve As A Will
Who needs to pay big bucks for lawyers to write out a will when all you need to do is send a text message? In fact, according to a new rule in Australia, you don’t necessarily even need to send it.
Believe it or not, the Supreme Court in Brisbane, Australia just ruled that a man’s unsent text message to his brother can be used as his last will and testament. In the specific case, the 55-year-old man wrote out a detailed account of how he wanted his property distributed to his brother although didn’t send it before committing suicide.
“You and (nephew) keep all that I have house and superannuation, put my ashes in the back garden,” he wrote. “(wife) will take her stuff only she’s OK gone back to her ex AGAIN I’m beaten. A bit of cash behind TV and a bit in the bank Cash card pin … My will.”
The court’s ruling came after the dead man’s wife applied to manage his estate, claiming that the text couldn’t be honored because it was never sent. But Justice Susan Brown instead ruled that it was valid, specifically because he used the words “my will” in the text and was very specific about how he wanted to be buried and who should get what of his property. The judge added that there was evidence that the deceased and his wife had ended things “just days” before his death.
