Most routinely fail to update wills following major life changes

33% of  adults neglect to revise their will following major life events such as marriage and divorce.

Wills are important for all adults if they care what happens to their children, assets and their own body after death.  This is particularly true of people who have gone through major life events such as getting married, having kids, separating or divorcing. For example, if you’re separated but not yet divorced, your former spouse or civil partner will get everything if that is what your will says.
