Separated, but not divorced

Published: 22nd September, 2014

My wife and I have separated, and have decided not to divorce. If anything happens to me will she automatically be entitled to my estate?
If you do not have a Will, the intestacy rules mean that your spouse will inherit your estate. To have full control over what happens on death, make sure you have a Will drawn up with a solicitor.

For similar questions, we will be doing our next #UKLegalHour on Wills and Probate.
