But they are infants, and if I was to die tonight, how would it work? Surely she would get it all, as she will be looking after them?
So would you advise a will then? I assume if you want to leave her 100% a will is needed.
Not really, what if you don't die till your kids are over 18 then they may end up suing your estate for proper provision.
Also what happens if ye both die, at the same time, have ye decided on what will happen in that situation. If you have children and assets then a will is more than a good idea it a necessity.
Many people think a it's ok I have no money anyway, but there is usually a house, insurance policies, work payments etc., it's a good idea to chat it out and then get local solicitor to draft up a will, also good idea to review every few years as children and yourselves get older.
