Taking Pride in our wills service

By August 25, 2016January 29th, 2021Wills & Probate

The rainbow flag flying above the town hall is just one reminder that Manchester Pride events will soon be underway. The way that Pride has grown and become the huge event it is today is testament to the community who drive it. And it takes some serious organisation!

Organising your legal matters can sometimes seem just as complicated. Couples who are in a relationship or living together, but who are not married or civil partners have no automatic right to inherit, so it is really important to make sure you have a will to provide for those you love. Marriage and Civil Partnerships can also have unexpected consequences. Wills you have made in the past will probably have been cancelled when you formalised your relationship. Your spouse will have an automatic right to inherit some of your assets, but not necessarily everything.

Glaisyers has a long track record of helping gay couples to make wills providing for each other and their family and friends. Our wills team are friendly and supportive and can make sure you pass your money and assets on in the way you want to.

So, once you’ve had a chance to make the most of the party of the year, give some thought to more serious matters and make sure you’re party isn’t spoiled. We’re here when you need us and happy to help over a cup of tea and some biscuits!
