Invalidating living wills

With the trend of hosting divorce parties, it is essential that before you start planning your soiree, you update your Will to recognise your new found freedom.Unlike divorce, marriage separation does not have an effect on your Will.

If you fail to update your Will upon separation and you pass away, your spouse may inherit any property you left to them.

The gift would instead revert to the residuary estate or be granted under the law of intestate succession.
