If the Deceased left a Will, it is generally advisable that the beneficiaries respect the wishes of the Deceased by administering the estates and distributing the properties according to the provision of the Will. Please seek our professional advice (especially on its implication) if the Beneficiaries decide not to follow the provision of the Will.
Is it true that my will is invalid upon my marriage/remarriage or divorce?
Generally your existing Will is revoked and becomes invalid upon your marriage or remarriage. If you do not write a new Will, your estates will be distributed in accordance with the Distribution Act 1958.
However, your existing Will does not become void and will remain valid after your divorce. It is therefore advisable to review your Will after your divorce to ensure that it reflects the change of your marital status.
