There are several ways to write a will. You can write it yourself, instruct a solicitor or professional will writer, or use an online will writing service. It is best to take professional advice if your family setup or financial assets are complicated. For example, you may need advice if:
If you've made a will, it's important to keep it up to date in order to take into account any changes in circumstances such as marriage, divorce, or the birth or adoption of a child. Should you get married or enter into a civil partnership, then any will that you made prior to doing so is automatically revoked. Unless a new will is made, you would die intestate.
Divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership does not revoke your will, but any appointment of your former spouse/civil partner as executor would not take effect, nor would any assets gifted to him or her.
