Do you have have a will

Answered 1 month ago

I accidentally saw my partners will and found out that I am not in it. Nothing has been left to me in the case I survive her so if I survive then what happens to the house we share now ?

Pretty sure someone else's will can't give away things that are legally yours. Eg. Assuming the house is owned 50/50, they can decide who gets their half, but your half stays as yours. You should really discuss this with your partner and get your own will drawn up.

I guess you’d contest it and take it to court, but that can get expensive. Are you sure it wasn’t an old will? Are you legally a couple? Like married or registered de facto with Centrelink or for tax purposes? Because that strengthens your case, when you marry previous wills become void anyway.

Yes married for over 25 years and the will was just made and I’m super surprised by it
