It is important that your Last Will and Testament (“Will”) is updated after any significant life change, such as a change in marital status, birth of a child, and acquisition or disposal of a major asset. You should not attempt to make changes to your Will without the assistance of an attorney. You want to ensure that any changes made are in compliance with current law. By marking your Will and/or scratching through words or clauses, you risk invalidating your will in whole or in part.
