Wills, Estates and Trusts Law – How Often Should A Will Be Updated And What Is The Process For Making Changes?
- Your will should be updated from time to time.
- Once in place, your will is not set in stone. You can make changes or even revoke it by either creating a codicil or addendum or simply creating a new will.
- Once you create a new will, the old will is no longer valid.
- People often want to either amend a will or create a new will if they get married, get divorced, or have children as these factors will drastically change how you want your assets divided after your death.
