How often should I review my Will?

Your Will is a breathing document and should be reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure it reflects your current life situation.

Change in Marital Status: If you separated since you made your Will and if your Will refers to your spouse as the beneficiary to your estate, be aware that under Ontario Law, you are not considered married but the ex-spouse still inherits if there are no changes to the Will so this should be changed after separation.

Change in Property: If you leave your daughter a specific property in Vaughan but now moved to a new home downtown, your daughter will not inherit your downtown home unless you update your Will.
