Law Commission Consultation on Wills

The Law Commission has opened a consultation on Wills: specifically asking if marriage should revoke a Will (along with the possibility of electronic Wills).

Of course this is one of our goals: to ensure that a marriage does not revoke an existing Will. If you support this change please go to https://www.lawcom.gov.uk/project/wills/ and say so. We are constantly fighting the mindset that predatory marriages are rare, when we hear about more and more all the time. We want to stop this: allowing a Will to stand after marriage will remove much of the incentive, and this single change would make a big difference for so many families.

The consultation closes on 8 December 2023.
