 The news of a mother and children being denied a share of their son’s and father’s estate rams home the perils of not keeping your Will bang up to date.

The case which is reported in the news section of the Clutton Cox Solicitors in Chipping Sodbury website is a cautionary tale.

What may have appeared to be a straightforward agreement in this case, between a husband and wife who were separating, had dire consequences for the family.

The moral of the story is to check with your solicitor that there are no pitfalls in what you seek to achieve.

There are many questions, about amending or updating your Will which you may not have considered.

Most Solicitors would not make a charge for general advice of this nature, so there really is no excuse in not asking.

The reality is that with some simple planning you could save your loved ones from the involuntarily, albeit innocent, financial repercussions of your inaction.
