What are Mirror Wills?
You may have heard the term, but be unfamiliar with what it means. A Mirror Will is a set of joint Wills where you leave all your earthly possessions to your spouse and they leave their possessions to you in the event one of you outlives the other.
This type of Will also works for partners that are not married or have had a civil ceremony and want to make financial provision for each other.
You can also include your children in these Wills if you and your partner have agreed to deal with that.
Our standard Will template has been customised to create the Mirror Will template and is one of a number of document templates available in our wills and probate templates section.
You may use this template more than once. So if at any time you and your spouse wish to change your Will, you can do so.
There will be no extra costs for using the template again. This means you can edit your Will many times over, without having to re-purchase the Will template again.
Pros and Cons of Mirror Wills
- Mirror Wills are ideal where you want a pair of joint wills that each reflect the other.
- Each of the two individuals leave everything to each other. Provision can be included to make any children the beneficiaries.
- Suitable for either married or unmarried Couples
- Either party can change their own Will at any time.
- If your life circumstances change it is important that you make sure the Will is updated if necessary.
When to create this type of Joint Wills
A Mirror Will generally leaves everything:
- firstly, to the surviving spouse;
- secondly, if there is no surviving spouse, then to the children; or
- thirdly, if there are no children, to a named beneficiary/ies.
It is the easiest form of a Will that a married couple or lifetime partners can draft. This simple template makes writing your Will fast and easy.

For Married and Unmarried Couples
The joint wills template can be used for married couples and also for unmarried couples. What is key for this type of joint will is that each partner wants their will to be identical to their partner’s. It is very common for each party to leave all of their assets to their partner.
Provision can be included so that if one of the members of the couple dies then any children that they share will inherit the deceased partner’s estate. This makes this type of will very popular as a joint will for a married couple. Alternatively if you are a couple with children and wish the children to inherit first then use the will for couples with children template.
