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.
Plan is to live 75% of my time in the Philippines and 25% in the UK
My solicitor is advising me on English legal rights.
A house and lot value about £100K
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.
