1. Until a will is actually revoked, whether by the making of another will or by its destruction, it remains valid. Here, just because your partner left the Irish Navy, this does not invalidate the will. However, if y our partner got married subsequent to the making of the will, then this will invalidate the will and it will no longer be valid. So, did you get married to your partner subsequent to him making the will?

No we were together for nine years and have a 22 month old son.

2. If that is the case, then the will is still valid. Having a son or cohabiting does not invalidate a will.
