While assumptions can be made as to where your money should go even if you don’t update your will (for example, when you adopt a child, normally part of your estate will go to that child even if you don’t explicitly mention him or her in your will) it’s important to update it after any life-changing event. After you divorce, remarry, have a child or even simply get engaged, be sure to update your last will and testament.
