Wills & Will Writing
Civil Partners and spouses have specific statutory rights known as earlier rights where no Will was made. Surviving children -which comprises adopted kids but excludes stepchildren- are eligible for legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. It is not the case as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit that married couples get the whole estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner. Scots Law provides some help for single couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they do not have an automatic right and any award is at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.
