Mutual Wills
Why are Mutual Wills different from ordinary wills?

What are Mutual Wills?
In accordance with Article 8A of the Israeli inheritance Act,  mutual wills are wills that are drafted on a basis of reliance of one spouse on the other spouse. Such wills may be legally drafted whereby the legatee under the mutual wills is the other spouse or  a third party, such as the spouses' children or other family relatives. It may be possible to draft mutual wills in one document or in two separate documents. However, when mutual wills are drafted in two separate documents, they must be drafted at the same time.

The uniqueness of Mutual Wills:
Mutual Wills are unique in the sense that they provide couples a channel to mutually and harmonically plan the bequeath of their Estate among themselves (or to others) following the passing away of one of the spouses, as well as after the passing away of both spouses – and to insert appropriate directives in their mutual wills to that effect. In mutual wills, unlike wills which are not mutual, both spouses may agree, that after the passing away of one spouse, the surviving spouse will not be allowed to revoke his mutual will and will be legally bound to its directives.

To whom are Mutual Wills suitable ?
Mutual wills serve as a channel for the bequeath of testators' Estate after their passing away, provided such testators fall within the definition of  "Spouses" under the Israeli Inheritance Act. Mutual wills are essential, especially, for spouses in their  second relationship with children born in the previous relationships. The uniqueness of  Mutual Wills  has  dramatic consequences on the strategy of the family property bequeath to legatees. To learn more, please click here.
