Customer Question

Good morning
I am Scottish, my Begium wife and I were married in Scotland 2010. We have lived in France for 4 years and I pay French taxes. If we divorce does our estate automatically get divided in half? Also if one of us dies does our estate (house, savings, ) automatically go to the living partner? We have been to see a French Lawyer trying to organise our wills and there appears to be quite a lot of confusion between English and Scottish Law. Your advice would be greatly appreciated

Please could you arrange to call me later in the day. I have business to attend to first. Could phone you when I am free to talk?

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
