As an older person with a partner (X), unmarried but a life partner nonetheless, I'm divorced and have 2 adult children. Everyone is on very good terms. I own the house that X and I share, plus a portfolio of shares, a small ARF, a cottage with small rental income...and a small enough income compared to our outgoings, and only small savings available for fees. I want to provide for my partner when I die (I am a good deal older than X); leave something immediately to my children; make sure that whatever X receives will pass to the children when X dies (I DO trust X, absolutely!); and avoid X being treated as a 'blood stranger' with a CAT threshold that's miniscule. There's a bit of a social welfare set of issues involved also. So I'm seeking someone who would be immediately able to advise on how best to set things up to meet the objectives I outlined above. West of Ireland would be a preference, though if Dublin was necessary I guess we'd have to consider that. I've had legal advice previously and it has cost a fortune for very little. Any suggestions would be gratefully listened to!
