    I hope you can help….
    I am wanting to create a will, so with this in mind I have attempted to access your guide (‘A guide to Wills and divorce – The guide below will help.’) unfortunately I cannot find the link to open it.

    In 1999 Marilyn Stowe’s company was my divorce lawyer. I have since remarried. My husband & I have a patchwork family, which includes a vexatious party that ‘my Family’ side need to protect against. So from our point of view, the will is complicated.

    Initially I would like to do as much reading as possible so that I have thought about, and hopefully have the answers for, all the various permutations, particularly as I am not in a position to spend time or money un-necessarily.

    I should be most grateful if in the first instance you could provide the link to your guide.

    Kind regards
    A Ream
