The Inheritance (Provision For Family And Dependants) Act 1975 is an Act in law which permits a court to make order for the making out of the estate of a deceased person who hasn’t made proper provisions before their death. In this case, broadly speaking, the role usually falls to immediate family or a partner. This typically includes provision for the spouse, former spouse, child, child of the family or dependant of that person.
Marriage will make a will completely null and void unless it has been made in contemplation of the marriage. Divorce will affect the terms of a will substantially. It is therefore important to consider making a will at various stages in your life. Second marriages invite different considerations.

All clients are encouraged to make a will, no matter their age, financial situation or background.
