What Happens if I Revoke My Will?
If you revoke a will and you did not execute any another will prior to that, you will be deemed to have died intestate.  Your property will pass via the intestate statute.  But let’s say you make “Will A” and years later, you make “Will B” which entirely revokes the former “Will A.”  If you later destroy “Will B, does it revive “Will A?” 

Under Washington law, the effect of your revocation really boils down to intent.  Washington law states that if, after you make a will you execute another will that revokes the first one, the destruction of the second will does not revive the first will.  You will be deemed to have died intestate.  That said, there is one important exception.  If a testator intended to revive the first will, then it is deemed revived.  Your intent, of course, will be subject to evidence proving that you intended to revive the first will.   If you intend to revoke a will, it is very important that you meet with an attorney so he/she can guide you through the appropriate way to revoke your will and to make sure that your property distribution objectives are met.
