If you are making a Will and intend to marry and you do not wish your marriage to revoke the Will, it is therefore important that the Will specifically references this.

Divorce also affects Wills and if you are not legally divorced, but have separated from your spouse then you should consider reviewing your Will. Otherwise, the legal spouse might be able to inherit under an old Will or under the intestacy rules, which may not be what you want. For further information about separation or divorce please contact our Family Department.
