Thought of the Week | Divorced, Update Your Will Within 3 Months!

An important aspect to consider when going through a divorce is whether or not your existing will correctly reflects your wishes.

If your former spouse is still the beneficiary of your will signed prior to the dissolution of your marriage, and you pass away within three months of the date on which your divorce is made final by the court, then in terms of Section 2B of the Wills Act, he/she will be disqualified from inheriting your assets.

However, if your death occurs after the expiry of the said three month period and if you have not yet changed your will in the meantime, then your former spouse will be entitled to inherit.

On the presumption that most divorced spouses would not want their estate to devolve upon their former spouse, it is essential to review your will and to make the changes required to correct this situation.
