    Will I need a new will when I get married 12th Feb 19 at 1:26 PM
    I hope someone can offer me advice. I am due to remarry and we have a child together. I have 3 adult children. The house is in my name and it was transferred to me on divorce settlement from my older 3 children's father. My partner has 2 adult children who have no contact with us only their father. My partner transferred their marital home to his ex wife in their divorce settlement.
    How do I go about ensuring that if I die before my partner the house is protected for him to live in and he has a share in it and the rest goes to our child and my 3 children.

    Go and see a solicitor and make a new will with your wishes.

    Yes. Any existing will is revoked by your marriage.
    Your solicitor will be able to advise you.

    You may also want to consider whether a pre-nuptial agreement might be appropriate.

    Thankyou. I thought as much. I am hoping to leave the house in my will as 70 per cent between the 4 children and 30 percent my husband to be. Hoping that is a possibility x
