Good Evening

Have you come up with consent orders? If not there is not guarantee you get anything.

If you dont have orders to protect you on his death the partner gets everything and you will have to contest any will or administration if he leaves no will.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
