What is a Will?
A willor testamentis a legal document by which a person, the testator, expresses their wishes as to how their property is to be distributed when they die. It states expressly the names of the persons who should benefit from the property when the person dies and the executors of the persons estate that will be in charge before the property is finally distributed.
Based on the above explanation of what a will is, it is thus a fact that having a will is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family in order to prevent the chaos of people fighting for your property when you die or property falling into the hands of a person you never intended to give such properties too. As such, not only can a will legally protect your spouse, children, and assets, it can also spell out exactly how you would like things handled after you have passed on.
