Should I Make a Will if I Get Divorced?

When divorcing or if you have divorced, you should review your existing Will or make a new Will to reflect your new circumstances.

If you are divorcing or have divorced your spouse, it is very important that you make or review your Will for the following reasons:

1. Your spouse could still inherit from your estate if you have not made a Will and die before having obtained a Decree Absolute

2. You may want to appoint Guardians for your minor children

3. If you have appointed your spouse as your Executor, the appointment will be invalid after Decree Absolute.
