Last week I had a meeting with a lady who was very concerned her husband won’t make a Will. Their situation was not uncommon. They are in their 50’s, and both have grown up children from previous marriages logitech c920 driver. They own their own house jointly, with no mortgage, and no major other assets.

As neither of them have a Will currently, it is a bit of a lottery as to who benefits Gravity download. Quite naturally, they would both like to benefit their own children. On the first death, the house which is the major asset will pass to then survivor kt biz say. If there is still no Will, when the second partner dies, (via the laws of intestacy), it would then pass to the surviving partners children.

What is needed is for the couple to write Wills 유 튜브 다운로드. The Wills can allow the surviving partner to remain in the house, after the first death. Each partner can benefit their own children in their Will, but the children may not receive very much, until the house is ultimately sold genian nac 다운로드.

This type of arrangement can also help in situations where the surviving partner re-marries, after the death of their spouse. In such cases, there is a real danger that all the children lose out, as the new spouse takes everything 올마스터 다운로드.
