Draft or Update Your Will
Until your divorce is finalised, your current spouse will have certain rights and responsibilities.
Until your divorce is finalised, your current spouse will have certain rights and responsibilities. If you do not want your spouse to benefit from your Estate and are not legally divorced yet, we recommend writing or updating your will with your new wishes. If you choose not to update your will, the terms of your will remain in place until you receive your Decree Absolute.

Can I Write My Own Will?
You can use our free template (available on our website – see our Will Instruction Form) to understand what information is used to write a Will. You can choose to the complete the form at home. However, please note this will not be a legally valid. A legal will needs to be witnessed by two people (non-family members).
What Happens To My Will After My Divorce?
Until your divorce is finalised (the Decree Absolute has been issued), anything that you have gifted to your ex-spouse in your Will would be passed on to the next beneficiary who is entitled to it. If there is no other named beneficiary, your estate will have to be dealt with under the intestacy rules.
