I've been advised to make sure my husband doesn't go ahead with the application for the d.absolute until the consent order has been sorted. The divorce if pretty amicable, and we have a property to sell and division of house equity and (poss) pension.
Both of our wills are, and will continue to be, everything to the other person on the event of death. He is saying because of this, if we have the [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url] before the consent order, if something happened to him it wouldn't make any difference as I would get everything anyway!
Is there anything I'm missing? Or is this reasonable?
If you are divorced then where it says I leave everything to my said wife, you won’t be! You wouldn’t get anything.
I checked this with my solicitor, so now I have consent order and divorce [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url] I am now written off in exes will...and he in mine
Once divorced you wouldn't be entitled to any spouses benefits from his pension should he die, I was told to wait 30 days from consent order being signed before applying for the [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url] to avoid any problems.
Once divorced you will need to make new wills even if they make the same provision as the current wills will be considered invalidated by the divorce.
