Things You Need To Know - Legal Information for Women Over 50 and their Families


This booklet is a compilation of what women in this age group are asking us when they call our free advice line, so we thought it would be great to put together a number of one page "starting points" - summaries of topics most often queried, and information regarding further options and additional services.

The booklet is in no way definitive, but it does contain answers to common questions and prompters for future thought and discussion.
