A Will, or Last Will and Testament, is a formal document used to express your wishes in the event of your death. It can be used to transfer property, as well as to nominate guardians for your minor children and a personal representative to oversee the administration of your estate. It is important to know that the establishment of a Will does not avoid the probate system. In fact, a Will is specifically used as a set of instructions by the probate court upon your death.
While a Will can be a fairly simple document in substance, it is important to know that it is prepared and executed properly so that you are confident your wishes will be fulfilled.
