A will should not be something that is concluded only once in your lifetime. Particularly where there are changes in one’s status or position in life e.g. marriage, divorce, children, inheritances, etc. It is always highly advisable to revisit your will and update it to your particular circumstances with the help of an estate planning specialist. For example, if you have been divorced and did not change your will, it could happen that your ex-spouse inherits your entire estate upon your death in accordance with the will you executed when you were still happily married. Our law only gives a period of three months following a divorce for you to amend your will during which time any bequest to your ex-spouse will be deemed revoked.
