Hi, I am recently divorced with 2 children 10 and 13. Their mother unfortunately died a week ago and no one knows who the estate goes to? We assume the children but as they are minors we are unsure of how this works? Would this be trustees and as the father would I be a trustee or the main recipient on behalf of the children? We are unsure if their is a will and the estate will only be savings from a house sale. Where would we find out if their is a will?
Hi Clare, The divorce was a clean financial settlement through solicitors
Thanks clare. Would i be able to invest the estate in having a loft conversion for them to have their own rooms as we are in a 2 bed house and my daughter is currently using the living room as a bedroom and my son is sharing with my partners son? I cant afford to move?
