Thanks for your question. Please kindly RATE my answer when you are satisfied
I am very sorry to hear of your sons passing.
You mention "our will". Does this mean you and your spouse or partner please?
our will is mine and my wifes.We have been married 39 years and our son was 35.
Thank you. If you wish you may make a change to your wills at any point which alters your beneficiaries. You are free to leave your estate to whom you wish and your son's wife does not have an inherent claim against your estate.
If your son had any children you may for example choose to leave some or all of your son's share to your grandchild(ren). If they are under 18 you may elect to leave the money in trust for them until the reach 18 or older.
Is there anything above I can clarify for you?
Our other son is named as well ,so does this mean we can leave our will untouched and therefore he will become sole beneficiary? The will was drawn up as a straightforward one just leaving our legacy to both our boys. Thanks
Whether or not you should make a new will would depend on the exact wording of the gift.
Do you have the exact wording to hand? Also did your son have any children?
