Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
A person is not legally entitled to benefit financially from a crime, and in these circumstances, the husband is deemed to have died before his wife. Her Will is therefore distributed on this basis.
I hope this assists and clarifies the legal position.
does this still apply as you died before February 2012 does it go to the persons named in her will if he has predeceased her or to her next of kin
when can I get a response please
Relist: Other. no answer
I keep waiting for a reply can you please reply urgent many thanks
I m unclear as to your response it seems to only give me details of your experience not answer the question
The question is if a person kills someone before february 2012 can they inherit under the terms of her will if the will states they need to survive 28 days which of course they did, does it go to the next beneficiaries under the terms of the will or is it taken there is no will and it goes to her next of kin
I note what you say he cannot inherit but who does it go to, does it go to the next beneficiaries named in the will as the will states they will inherit if husband has predeceased her or not survived by 28 days or is it taken that she has died intestate and then goes to her next of kin
many thanks the will states as follows
I give my residuary estate to my husband ...provided he survives me by 28 days, if my husband does not survive by 28 days then the following clauses shall take effect I give my residuary estate as follows:-
25% to each of my two nephews at the age of twenty fiveyears or if deceased to their children and 50% to a charity
only A CHILD SHE HAD ADOPTED AT THE AGE OF 1 WEEK AND SHE IS SURVIVED BY ONE SISTER ONE BROTHER AND ONE STEP BROTHER
point 3 is blank
she had her child adopted and had nothing more to do with him,so does the estate go to her brother and sister and step brother
Did the above answer all your questions or is there anything I can clarify or help you with any further?
