Many of us would like to make a difference when we die by leaving a gift to charity. We might have supported the charity or benefitted from its work in our lifetime. However, there are some possible pitfalls.
When you marry your existing Will becomes invalid, so creating a new Will is important. If you don’t make a new Will the laws of intestacy will apply, which might not be what you want.
Around four out of every 10 weddings in the UK are remarriages. Family circumstances are often more complicated when you have been married before, and if your Will isn’t clearly written this can lead to difficulties when one partner dies.
