My husband had a will made years ago. He left his estate to his brother and sister because he has no children. When we got married he was going to redo the will but never got to it. He did have me put on the deed to the house and made me beneficiary of his life insurance. If he would pass, do i get this or does the will still outweigh the marraige?
As long as there has been no codicil to the will executed you will still be entitled to at least an elective share of the estate if he were to pass away. With this said, this process would be quite a bit more complex and ultimately both of you should just execute a new will. Most attorneys can perform this service for a very minimal cost, and it will save a ton of headaches down the road.
