If I get married or divorced does that affect my Will?
If you marry after you have made a Will, the Will is generally revoked or cancelled, unless it was made in anticipation of marriage. Marriage will not affect a gift to the person who is your spouse at your date of death.
If you divorce after you make your Will, it only revokes or cancels any gift to a former spouse. It also cancels your former spouse’s appointment as executor, trustee or guardian in the Will unless the former spouse is trustee of property left on trust for beneficiaries that include children of both you and your former spouse. However, this won’t apply if the Court is satisfied that the Will maker did not intend by divorce to revoke the gift or appointment. Those issues require specific legal advice.
