Can I change a Mirror Will without telling my partner?

31st Aug 2018

I have a Mirror Will with my partner. I have now learned if I die first he can change the will and he has given me reason to believe this is what he will do, therefor can I change the will without telling him. There is not a substantial amount involved but do not want my children to miss out on the small amount.

    A mirror Will can be changed at any time and does not require input from anybody else. However a Joint or Mutual Will is slightly different, in that both partners contractually agree to the terms of their wills, making them legally binding. This is very unusual so the short answer is yes you can change your mirror Will without the permission or knowledge of your partner.
