What happens when this happens ...is your Will ‘Divorce- Proof’?

Have you ever thought what will happen to your children’s inheritance if they were to divorce?

You may have already planned who your beneficiaries will be, assuming your children will automatically inherit your assets, after all that’s what your Will says, but this might not actually go to plan when 42% of marriages in the UK end in divorce.

Picture this scenario, as a result of a divorce your child /chosen beneficiary has to split half of their inheritance (your money) with their ex-partner, so the money you intended for your children and grandchildren will go to someone else. Clearly NOT what you had in mind.

As much as you try you can’t spare your children from the pain of a divorce, but you CAN spare them the bitterness of losing part of their inheritance to an ex-spouse or partner.

Setting up a simple Trust alongside your Will, means that you can control where your money goes, even after you have gone.
