Alex J. : Hi thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Yes this is possible but whoever is making the distribution will likely require written instructions from you and a copy of your wife's ID and marriage certificate - this will be for anti money laundering purposes. Is there a specific reason why you require this? I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards. AJ

Hi
Thank you,
As long as it is not to avoid payment of tax or creditors then there should be no issue with this request. Just be prepared to provide the information I have detailed.
Is it a solicitor making the payment?
Kind regards

Yes.

When the time comes a solicitor will be dealing with the estate.

Expert:  Alex J. replied 2 years ago.
A solicitor is probably more likely to be comfortable with this request but only if they can verify your wife's ID.
Kind regards.
