Under section 6 of the Family Relationships Act 1975 (SA) all children, whether born in marriage or not, are treated the same when dealing with a will, unless the will states otherwise.
Unless there is something to the contrary in a will executed before the Family Relationships Act 1975 (SA) commenced (29 January 1976), any reference to children will only include children born within marriage.
