Do you need a new will when you get married?
Making a will may not be the first thing you think of when planning your wedding, but you should be aware that your legal status changes upon marriage.
Importantly, any former will is automatically revoked (cancelled) unless it specifically states otherwise. This means that your estate will be divided according to the government’s intestacy rules and not according to your wishes.
It is important to update your will or create a new will whenever your circumstances change, for example getting married or entering a civil partnership, getting divorced or dissolving a civil partnership, or when you have children.
Making a pair of wills with makeawillonline.co.uk
Our great value will writing service allows you to make a pair of wills for just £90.00.
Once you have completed your first will, you will have the chance to start a second one. You can either start a brand new will, following the same set of questions as before, or you can make a mirror will, which “mirrors” the wishes of the first will.
The only new information you will need to enter for a mirror will is the name of the second testator (the person whose will it is) and any specific legacies, ie gifts that belong to the individual. Also, be sure to check any funerary wishes for each individual.
With makeawillonline.co.uk, you can login and update your will for up to 30 days (max. 3 updated wills).
