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 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.
