Legal support is not provided to Australian Defence Force (ADF) members after separation unless there are exceptional circumstances. Though there are some considerations which are part of the transition process.


Support is provided to full-time ADF members to store wills.

When a member transitions from Defence, the member is contacted to confirm the return details of the will. Members can then request the will to be returned or destroyed. For exceptional circumstances arrangements may be made to retain the will for a limited period.

A family member can make enquiries about an existing will of a deceased ex-member. If Defence holds the will, it will be returned to the executor.

Contact with any enquiries.
