When a widowed parent finds love again, it can be a whole new lease of life not only for them, but the two families they bring together. No one could deny their loved ones the chance to see out their twilight years in the company of someone they love.

But a new marriage can raise succession questions – marriage nulls any existing will unless it was made with express provision of the impending nuptials. If your parent dies without a will, the new spouse will inherit under intestacy laws and children expecting a pay out on their remaining parents’ death may be left wanting as an entirely different family inherits.

Disputes over wills are on the increase. In 2013, 861 inheritance cases were heard in the English High Court, compared with 490 in 2012 – a 76% increase. This is why solicitors recommend a review of your will every 5 years or at every major life change. You might want to wait till after the honeymoon, but don’t wait too long to make sure your will reflects your life and your wishes. Even a simple will can protect your family legacy.

"It was a pleasure to work with Cindy and her team! Even though planning for one’s own death is a project we all can easily put off, it removed an area of stress in my life. I no longer had to wonder if certain people would be taken care of, or where my money would go. Cindy and I worked through the process and she asked a lot of thought provoking questions. The first draft helped me think a second layer down, and made the will more complete. We finalised with her lawyer, signed, witnessed and put away in a safe place, letting my executor know exactly where to find it. I do not hesitate to recommend Cindy’s services."

"Cindy made the process of making a Will painless and efficient which we really appreciated. She was sensitive to avoid putting pressure or hassle to complete the Will quickly which allowed us to consider everything in our own time. Best of all, Cindy's professional support and thorough and clear explanation of the laws pertaining to our situation were very helpful. We would look forward to working with Cindy again on documents personal to our family."
