Laws of Intestacy

If you die without a Will, then the Government will decide who will inherit your estate in accordance with the Laws of Intestacy. These laws state that your spouse may end up sharing your estate with your children or parents, or if you are an unmarried couple, then your partner may not get anything.

Without knowing who you want as guardians, the authorities will decide who is best placed to look after your young children, which may be hugely upsetting and disruptive. It can also mean that your partner (if you are not married) does not automatically become guardian of young children, even though they may be the father.

Horror of horrors! Die without a Will and your ex-spouse, may be entitled to claim part, or all of your estate in certain circumstances! Even if your ex-spouse cannot make a claim, your children's trust fund may fall under their control.
