Inheritance and stepfamilies

The basic principle in England and Wales is that each individual is free to make a will that leaves his or her assets as s/he chooses. There are certain rules that affect the validity of a will (for example, two independent witnesses must together witness the testator’s signature), but provided the will is valid, only people within certain categories of relationship to the person who died are entitled to challenge the effect of the will. If, as is very common, someone has died without making a will, that person’s assets are distributed according to the laws of intestacy.
