If my partner is separated from s wife but divorce

This answer was rated:

If my partner is separated from his wife but divorce proceedings have not begun, is she entitled to inherit if he dies?

Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

Unless your Partner makes a Will then his wife will inherit under the Intestacy Rules in the event of his death.

Even if he does make a Will then if he makes no provision for his Wife she will be able to make a claim against the Estate

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
