How do I revive a revoked will?

It is not uncommon during the life a testator that he or she will come to reconsider all or part of his or her will, and seek to revoke it. Will revocation in Minnesota requires compliance with specific statutory procedures, and as long as these are adhered to then the law will presume that the testator meant to revoke and replace the old will with a new one, instead of merely supplementing the existing will.

What are the rights of a surviving spouse when there is no will?

While it is true that the law in Minnesota provides for the distribution of assets after your death even if you do not leave a valid will, estate planning allows you to avoid potential pitfalls. The laws of intestacy under which your assets are distributed to your heirs after your death may not provide for your family as you might have in a will.
