Civil Partnership and Wills

At a time when a civil partnership is breaking down the last thing you might be thinking about is a question of death. However making or revisiting your Will at the time of civil partnership breakdown is an essential part of the process to enable you to move on to the future and to protect the interests of your children or remaining family.

A dissolution of the civil partnership will have a legal effect on any Will that you have made previously. It will also affect the way in which your assets are divided if you have not made a Will.

Whether you have already brought the partnership to an end or whether you are in the process of doing so or if you have simply separated it is important to consider how you would want your assets to be distributed in the event of your untimely death. Many couples who are separated or divorcing may still have Wills in place in which they leave everything to their partner. In some circumstances this could leave the remaining partner or any children in a vulnerable position.

Please contact our specialists in the field of Wills who will be happy to put in place new arrangements for you to safeguard your assets and pass them to the right people in the event that the unthinkable happens.
