When should I change my will?

The most obvious time to change your Will is when you experience a change in your family circumstances. This could be marriage, separation, divorce, remarriage or the birth of a child or grandchild for example.

If you are separated but not divorced, your former spouse will have a claim against your estate after your death unless you make a new Will. If you are divorced, but wish to continue to benefit your former spouse after your death, then you will need to remake your Will.

If you already have a Will, marriage will automatically revoke it and you would need to make a new one.

It is also advisable to remake your Will if your financial situation changes or you would like to reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax payable.
