How Divorce Impacts Your Will

July 3, 2024

Divorce can significantly impact your will.

Beneficiaries, executors, and guardians named in the original document may no longer align with your post-divorce intentions. Assets intended for your former spouse may need redistribution, and new provisions for children or future partners might be required.

Because of this, if you are divorced or going through a divorce it is highly recommended that you review and potentially update your will to reflect new wishes and legal realities. By updating your you can mitigate the risk of unintended consequences, legal disputes, and the potential exclusion of important loved ones.

In this video Insight, Luke Davies discusses what happens to your Will upon divorce, the things that might need to be updates and the importance of reviewing your Will.
