Lets say there is a married couple and they both have identical wills; with a survivorship clause along the lines of:
- I direct that the reside of my estate shall be paid, transferred and delivered to my spouse (xxx) for his/her own use... provided s/he survives me for a period of (30) thirty days.
- In the event my spouse (xxx) predeceases me or does not survive me for a period of (30) thirty days, then: give $10k to the church and split the remainder in equal shares to my children.
- if both spouses have the same children and die at the same time, does the church get $10K or $20K ?
- if the church gets $20k; how would you change the will so the church get $10K total regardless who dies first and the time between the deaths.
