If you are the first to die, your share of the property and other assets are mostly left to your partner. If they eventually meet a new partner – or even get remarried, the previous
Will can automatically be cancelled, meaning that children can lose out.

This is an increasingly common issue as people are living longer and remarrying after their spouse’s death. In fact, according to the latest statistics, 60% of men and 20% of women are likely to re-partner.
