My father in law did leave a will which states that he leaves all his estate to his girlfriend. This then goes to his four children in the event of her death within 28 days.
We have yet to see what assets he has for, we have not seen the hard copy of the will, only what looks like the 1st page via email. I do know it is DIY will, but I am unsure of how many pages they have.
His private pension was work related CARICOM is the name of the company he worked for.
I have contacted them to see what the spouse is entitled to and was informed that it is 50% of the pension.
What I do not know is whether this would apply to her.
I do not know about the former matrimonial home, as far as I know they did not have any contact with each other.
