Important Note

  • If you made a will and were subsequently married it is automatically revoked (cancelled).

  • If you made a will when you were married and the marriage subsequently ended it is automatically revoked (cancelled) unless:

    • the marriage ended before or on 8 February 2008;

    • a contrary intention appears in the will; or

    • there is other evidence establishing such an intention.

  • You might have prepared a will that is not valid for numerous other reasons such as that it has not been executed (signed) properly.
