Q & A

Q: If my Wife or Husband passes away, do I get everything he owns?
A:

It depends on what is written in the Will. If there is no Will, then intestacy rules apply. Two of the rules are as follows:

  1. If the deceased leaves a spouse but no children, the spouse is entitled to the whole of the estate.
  2. If the deceased leaves a spouse and children and the children are all also children of the spouse, the spouse is entitled to the whole of the estate.
