Your Will is automatically revoked (cancelled) if you get married after you have signed and executed it unless you provide a clause in your Will stating that you intend to get married and the name your future spouse.
If you divorce, then your Will is still valid but any provision you made for your ex-spouse is treated as if they had died and this could lead to problems especially if you have appointed them as your executor.
If you separate from your spouse, then that separation has no effect on your Will. As a result, any Will you have leaving provision for your estranged spouse will be valid and obviously this may not be what you would want.
These are just a few of the problems that could be encountered if you decide to draft your own Will and are reasons why seeking Legal advice is well worth considering. We would recommend reviewing your will with any potential change in personal relationships.
