Mr Murali Pillai (Bukit Batok SMC)
To ask the Minister for Law whether the Inheritance (Family Provision) Act 1966 will be reformed to allow the extension of the current legal duty of a natural parent to maintain an illegitimate child to continue after his or her death such that his or her estate will continue to be liable to discharge that duty.
- MinLaw has been studying possible reforms to the Inheritance (Family Provision) Act 1966.
- This has taken some time, due to resource constraints.
- We will provide further updates when the studies are completed.
