Hello

Welcome to Just Answer

I am a Solicitor and will assist you.

Please may I ask:

- does either of you have a will? Made before or after marriage?

- is his house in his sole names?

- is your ex still living? If not, who own someone his share?

- either of you have any children?

Kind regards

Caroline

Hello

Thank you for your response. Please accept my apologies for my delay in responding to you whilst I have not been available.

Can you confirm the position in relation to wills for me :

- does either of you have a will? Made before or after marriage?

- is your ex still living? If not, who own someone his share?

- either of you have any children?

Kind regards

Caroline
