Mirror Wills are Wills that are almost identical to each other. Both Wills share similar provisions and are an ideal choice for a married couple or partners who want to protect their partner’s financial future. Normally, a mirror Will states that when the person passes away, their partner will inherit their estate. Both Wills will effectively mirror the other so that the provisions are almost identical.
A mirror Will can also provide for the couple’s children. For example, if you have children from a previous marriage, you may include them in your Will so that your partner and your children receive an equal share of assets and are protected.
If you and your partner are not married, legally under the rules of intestacy, they will not be entitled to anything, so making a mirror Will is a good option to ensure the protection of your partner’s financial future.
