If I marry a Filipino national does she have any specific rights

This answer was rated:

If I marry a Filipino national does she have any specific rights to my estate on my death.
HiDo you have any children?Do you have a Will and, if so, what does the will say? Tom
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have three adult children for whom I have already made potentially exempt transfers. I have six grandchildren. (I am approaching my 80th birthday)

I am reviewing my will. My intention is to ensure that there is sufficient for any future wife to live on with the residue for my children/grandchildren.

The reason for my question is that I need to know if Philippine law obliges me to make specific provision for a widow and if so what.

Hi, I cannot comment on Philippine law I'm afraid, so I will have to opt out. Your question will remain open but you may find that no expert feels qualified to answer. Tom

Plan is to live 75% of my time in the Philippines and 25% in the UK

Are you aware of her rights in UK law?What assets will you have in the Phillippines?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

My solicitor is advising me on English legal rights.

A house and lot value about £100K

Then I shall also opt out - I am not sure that we have any experts from the Phillipines

Leave the question open. I plan to invest around £100,000 on a home inthe Philippines which my wife will inherit when I die. I wanted to know if she will have any additional claim to my estate.
