Legal Eagle Q & A: Does marriage mean a new will?

January 28, 2019 by Melinda @ Giles Wilson Solicitors

Question : My partner and I made wills when we first lived together as we both have children.  But we are now getting married. Do we need to make new wills?

Answer: Yes, you definitely do.  Marriage invalidates a will so you should make a will either just before your wedding so that special provisions can be put in place to make sure the will stays valid or as soon as you are married.  Not the most romantic thing of the day I do accept but essential nonetheless!
