Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Had the Decree Absolute been issued?
Then i am so very very sorry but the Will stands just as it is and his estranged wife will indeed still benefit
I am sorry not to give you better news
Please ask if you need further details
Have you obtained Probate of the Will?
My apologies for the delay
Yes if you assist with the money then you can leave the rest of the matters - including paying any debts that come up - to her.
Since there is no Probate you do not need to do this
You are most welcome - I wish the news had been better
