Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Does this also apply if he should die before me? Am I not entitled to any of his estate that he aquired before we married? It seems as though me giving up everything to come up to Scotland and be with him has left me in a situation that should he die before me, then I would be at the mercy of his family.
Thank you so much for your help. I have just 1 further question. My husband and his wife made identical wills, leaving the estate to each other in the event of one of them outsurviving the other, and to the children if they did not. As far as I am aware he has not made another will. Is this one still valid?
Many thanks again.
So if he dies without making another will then his children inherit the estate?
Do I have any rights in that instance if he does not make another will between now and his death?
So if I can just clarify here please? As it stands with his will as it is, his heritable property would be left to his children?
Even if my husband and I reached a reconciliation and I moved back into the house with him, if he died before me, I could be made homeless as I would have no legal right/claim on the heritable estate? I only have rights to the moveable estate?
Have I understood that correctly?
Thanks again for all you help.
