There has been plenty of coverage recently of the alleged breakdown in a relationship between Lynda Bellingham’s husband and her two sons from a previous relationship. If press coverage is to be believed, Lynda’s husband got everything and her two boys received almost nothing.
Protecting Children from a Previous Relationship
Where there are children from previous relationships there is great potential for conflict in terms of who gets what and when. Leaving everything to a spouse in the belief or hope that they will ‘do what is right ‘ for step children means taking a massive risk with your children’s inheritance. Unless the assets are legally protected for those children, the spouse may have remarried, had further children with a new partner, lost contact with the step – children, been made bankrupt or simply spent the lot by the time of their death and in each of these scenarios your children may receive NOTHING.
As Saira said, “My dad gave me the best advice ever about looking after my finances when he said: “Never trust anyone when it comes to money.”
