Family Provision Act 1969 
The Bill amends section 9(1) of the Family Provision Act 1969 to reduce the time in which a 
family provision claim may be made against a deceased estate. Currently, eligible applicants 
have 12 months after the date when administration in respect of the estate of the deceased 
person has been granted to make a claim. The amendment reduces this period to 6 months.
