Changing your Will



Changng a Will
Your will is your opportunity to ensure that your estate is dealt with and distributed in accordance with your wishes upon your death and to ensure that any children you may have are looked after by those whom you would entrust with their care. It is important having prepared a will that you ensure that it is kept up to date. It may be that your wishes have changed since you made your will or that your circumstances have changed since you made your will.
Keeping your will up to date
Life changing situations can also have an effect on your will and you should always review your will if one of the following events takes place.
Implications of marriage on your Will
As a general rule a will is revoked when the testator marries. Similarly, as a general rule a will is revoked when the testator enters into a civil partnership.
Implications of divorce on your Will?
When a “decree absolute” (a court order which finalises a divorce) is made or, in the case of a civil partnership, a “decree of dissolution” (a court order which brings a civil partnership to an end) is made, any provisions contained in a will which benefit the ex-spouse or ex-civil partner are automatically revoked.
Destroying a will
If you want to destroy your will you should burn it, tear it up or otherwise destroy. Once you have destroyed it in one of these manners the will is revoked providing that you clearly intended to destroy the will.
Changing a Will after death
A deed of variation is a legal document which changes the distribution of assets under a will after the death of the “testator” (the person who made the will) or which varies the distribution of the deceased’s estate when they die “intestate” (without leaving a will).
