Spouses and Civil Partners have specific statutory rights known as prior rights where no Will has been made. Surviving children -which includes adopted kids but excludes stepchildren- are entitled to legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. It is not the case that married couples automatically get the entire estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit. Scots Law now provides some help for unmarried couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they would not have an automatic right and any award is right at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.
