Marriage invalidating a will
I am told that, to avail of this exception, it would be sensible to have the intention stated expressly in the will although that is not absolutely required under section 85 (2) of the Succession Act.
Be sure to update these plans if you want the beneficiary updated.
It is therefore essential to make a new Will after a second Marriage has occurred to ensure that your new spouse can benefit from your estate in line with your wishes.
Any Will Writer, Estate Planning Consultant or Solicitor will tell you that even if you have already made a Will you should still review it if you have had or plan any major change in your circumstances.
We know that should anything happen to you, you need to be sure that your spouse will be taken care of in the manner you specify.
Both married and unmarried couples should create a Will.
