It just occurred to me that I urgently need to update my will. I was going to do it when we moved house but that hasn't happened yet.
As I am still legally attched to Ex as we are not divorced yet how would I lay the will out? And quite frankly I don't want to spend a lot on it as I imagine I will ahve to chaneg it as soon as the hosue is sold and we are moved and then again when we are divorced (whichever comes first).

Depending on the wording, the will could anticipate the sale of the house and subsequent purchase of another I think.
A will doesn't become invalid when you get divorced either, its just that the terms of it might no longer be relevant (but they're probably not relevant now either). So you can change it now for that reason and you wouldn't have to change it again when you get divorced. NB I'm not a legal expert by any means so double check, but that's what I think.

you could have a will setting out who you want to leave your estate to, but until you have a Consent Order (financial agreement) approved by the court (which you can only get once you start divorce process) he could always claim from your estate. There's no guarantee he would be successful though....
