Q: Can we make a new Will if we cannot find old Will

we had a will. it is lost. can we draft a new will without the old one?

Advocate Gagan Anand answered
Yes, a new Will can be drafted in super-cession of the previous Will by mentioning in the new Will that any Will previously executed stands cancelled. The effect shall be that even if the previous lost Will gets traced out, the same shall not take effect. The contents of the fresh/ new Will shall have an over-riding effect over the provision of the previous Will.

Got a divorce notice from husband. Dispute with husband now husband staying separate and the agreement is on his name.

Earlier they agreed, yesterday i received a call that they are denying to return the security deposit.

If yes then what action?
