A Will lets you tell the world your wishes about what you want to happen after you pass away.
There are certain significant life events after which you will need to update your Will. These significant life events include:
It is important to note that:
The following example happens more often than you would think: Sam and his second wife, Sally, separated 10 years ago. Sam did not get around to updating his Will after he separated from Sally.
Sam recently passed away and his only son from his first marriage, Max, was shocked to learn that Sam had left Sally everything he owned in his Will. Max then had to go to considerable effort and expense to contest Sam’s Will in court.
Moral of the story: update your Will after significant life events to make sure your wishes are followed after you pass away.
