Q&A - Will it include legal expenses if I claim compensation for accident injury?

Q:  I was involved in a road traffic accident which was not my fault. I sustained an injury to my neck and shoulder which, two months on, is not getting any better despite undergoing a course of physiotherapy. As I did not have legal expenses cover with my motor insurance I did not make any claim for my injuries at the time. However, I am now concerned that my injuries could affect my ability to do my job if things do not improve. If I decided to make a claim for compensation would any award include legal expenses?

Q&A - Will children still be sole beneficiaries of my Will if I remarry?

We plan to live in my house after we are married and rent her house out, so if anything happens to one of us the other can revert to living how we did before. Do we need to update our Wills to ensure that our respective children will remain sole beneficiaries of our respective Wills as they are now?

Q: I am in my late 50's and have discovered that my husband has been cheating on me for years. The relationship is over, but I am terrified to divorce him in case I can't manage financially.
