What am I entitled to if my spouse dies?

Where there’s a Will, there’s a way! At your local solicitors for Wills, we are familiar with advising clients who find themselves in the midst of a separation or divorce on the best way to ensure that their ex-spouse does not benefit from their estate. Sometimes, a Will itself is not enough, and it can be prudent to include a bit more information for your executors so that, if necessary, the Court can see your intentions behind your final wishes.
However, for one Surrey man, Mr Hendry, this was not necessary. Following the breakdown of their relationship, Mrs Hendry filed for a divorce in November 2016, however these proceedings were brought to an end when Mr Hendry died in February the following year.
