My estranged wife has died while we were still negotiating a financial setllement. We have two properties and mortgages on both. I am now left with 4 young children (5,7,10,13) to raise and have been left out of her will and she switched properties to tenants in common this year. All her life insurance, car, 50% share of each property have been left to a trust for the kids when they reach 25. She managed the mortgages and have now discovered they are $40,000 in arrears. Am I responsible for paying 100% of mortgage payments, do I have a strong case to seek family provision.
