HelloIf your husband was to pass away and you were still married - and he made no provision for you - then you are able to make a claim to contest the will under the Inheritance Act.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 1 year ago.
A claim under the inheritance act is roughly based on a hypothetical divorce.

Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 1 year ago.
If you did divorce - then all assets are matrimonial assets - no matter whose name they are in.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 1 year ago.
The starting point for division of assets is normally 50/50.
Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 1 year ago.
If therefore your husband was to pass - and no provision was made for you - then you should contest the will immediately.
