Second Marriage Wills

Wills are automatically revoked on marriage, so if you have created a Will and since remarried the chances are your Will is no longer valid (unless it was made in contemplation of marriage).

If you die without a valid Will, your estate will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules meaning that your children could be left with nothing or very little, especially where you have children from more than one marriage.

The intestacy rules outline that your spouse will inherit the first £250,000 of your estate and one half of your remaining estate.
