Divorce Coping Tip for 8th September 2015

It’s a sobering thought, but we are all a day closer to pushing up the daisies, as it were.

Until you officially untie the knot with your ex and unless you make any alterations to your last will and testament in the meantime, what you previously stated you wanted to happen in the event of your untimely demise, is probably what will happen if you pop your clogs any time soon.

Divorces can take an incredibly long time to conclude and if the thought of your ex profiting from your death irks you greatly – regardless of whether you have a substantial estate or not – you need to alter your will with your solicitor as soon as possible following your separation.

It’s a fairly fundamental process, most switched on solicitors will offer this option to you as a matter of course, but don’t be afraid to request it at your first discussion.
