Protecting Assets in Second Marriages

It is common for a couple to make Wills leaving their estate to each other on their first death. However, in second marriages this can cause problems, particularly if both parties have their own assets that they wish to protect.

If a couple make Wills leaving their assets to each other on the first death, then the survivor will own all of the combined assets. The problem with this is the survivor is free to change their Will at any time and the first parties chosen beneficiaries could be cut out completely.

It is quite common that couples in second marriages wish to protect their assets not only during the marriage, but also after their death.

Our experts can help advise you about the various options that are available to you. We can talk to you about trusts to help protect your assets, whilst still making some provisions for your spouse.

We used Taylor Bracewell to write our Wills and POA, which should of been done years ago. Watching family this year not having done either we realised what huge problems it caused for them. The process was easy and we can now rest knowing that all our needs are sorted making it easier for our own children. Anon opening-speachmarks closing-speachmarks
