Welcome to this month’s edition of Private Client Issues, Blake Morgan’s monthly round-up of the topics you may find of interest. It features insight and advice on developments affecting private individuals.
Following the release of the restrictions, our offices are fully open. Our teams work both from our offices and remotely and remain happy to meet with you virtually, or in person where this is preferred. We have found that many clients prefer the convenience of a video meeting, whilst other prefer face to face, particularly for the first meeting. We are really proud of the way that we have adapted over the last two years.
Challenging Wills: lack of testamentary capacity
There are six main grounds on which to challenge the validity of a Will. In the first part of this series we focus on testamentary capacity.
Is it possible to be divorced without knowing?
Yes! A recent case has highlighted that fraudulent divorce is possible, but confirmed that any decrees obtained in this way are capable of being set aside.
Pension decisions impact financial settlements
Pensions can have a big impact on divorce and financial settlements so it is important to get the right legal advice when you are separating.
Consider social media when drafting your Will
Social media accounts, including services such as Facebook, Instagram and Tick Tock, are a type of digital asset that should be thought of when drafting your Will.
Independent designers should retain control
With the development of the internet and creatives becoming increasingly savvy independent designers now know to retain as much control of their creations as possible.
If you are impacted by any of the above topics or you would like further information on how we can help you, please contact your usual Blake Morgan adviser.
