A carefully worded Will can provide for a surviving spouse or civil partner as well as protect inheritance for children from a previous marriage or civil partnership.
A trust structure is often useful to avoid friction and guarantee provision for those close to you.
A new marriage or civil partnership revokes an earlier Will , the exception is where a civil partnership has been converted into a marriage. This could leave your estate exposed to the Intestacy laws and lead to costly disputes, if you have not made a new Will to reflect your new situation.
