I understand that wills made in different countries should not conflict in their conditions.

However, I made a will some years ago, in my divorced capacity, in England, which bears very little, if any, relationship to the current Spanish will, my wife and I made here in Spain, which covers all our needs and intentions.

We are permanent residents here and intend to stay for the rest of our lives.

May be a silly question, but does anybody know if it would be in order for the English will to be destroyed, if I so wish?

The last thing I want is problems at the 11th hour, although heaven alone knows when that will be.

Thanks in advance for any help and information.

Do you have assets in the UK?

If you do or maybe will have during the rest of your life. It is beeter for you to do a new will there in the UK.

The Spanish one will just apply for your assets here in Spain.

Thank you for responding Maria,

while I have a small amount of money in a bank in the UK, all our main assets are in your beautiful country.

So I think I will have the English will disposed of.

Thank you again for your advice.
