There are various circumstances in which you may need to update your will. 

If you experience changes in your personal relationships, such as getting married or divorced, or having children, you should consider revising your will as soon as possible. 

In the unfortunate event that one of your beneficiaries or executors passes a way, you may need to update your will or make a codicil. 

Depending on how your will is written, you may need to update it if you acquire or dispose of assets. If your financial circumstances have changed significantly, it is important to seek legal counsel as it may be advisable to make a new will.
