How long does a Last Will and Testament last?

A last Will and Testament is valid until it is revoked. There are three ways a will can be revoked.

  1. It can be revoked by you by intentionally destroying (revoking) it.
  2. It can be revoked when you make a new will and you revoke all previous wills and codicils. 
  3. It may be revoked if you were to have a child after writing your will, where the law would assume  that you wish to provide for the new child, that did not exist at the time the original will was made.
Your will remains valid for an unlimited amount of time with the exception of the above conditions.
