I am a seventy one year old widow and I hold a Dutch passport. I have a passport in my own name that declares that I was married and to whom. (a U.K. National) . I want to marry again to a United Kingdom National; i.e.: born and bred in the U.K., a sixty-one year old single man, living on Incapacity Benefit and Income Support because of his Rheumatoid Arthritus, which was diagnosed in 1996. I am applying for Pension Credit. If I were to be married again, I have the following questions: -In case I am allocated a Pension Credit, how could this Benefit be affected? - If one partner receives this benefit, does that automatically apply to the other partner as well? -I would like to know what the implications the above mentioned information could have on my future husband existing benefits. Also, I would like to ascertain that my future husband would not be responsible for my funeral costs in case I die, nor for any of my eventual tax payments and vice versa. My income at the moment and for the foreseeable future is in any case below the taxable minimum. Would we need a ‘pre-nup’? As neither of us wants to incur each other’s assets or debts I would be grateful if you could point out any other advantages or pitfalls that I have not thought about. thank you for your attention Aria le Clercq
I would also like to mention that I receive a dutch pension of £ 250.--/month.
I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck.
Thanks and best wishes...
