Have you asked the Australian lawyer to deduct the agreed legal fees from your legacy before it is distributed to your children as per the Deed?
In that case you should discuss this as I do not see anything wrong with this. In fact the Deed may provide for this i.e. all legal costs incurred in connection with the drafting and implementation of the Deed be deducted from the legacy before it is distributed.
All the best. Please click on 5 stars if this helps.
