Last Will and Testament
Having a Last Will and Testament is very important. It will ensure that your wishes as to how you would like to have your estate divided are fulfilled. In order for a Will to be valid, it must be written, signed by the person making the Will and signed by two (2) witnesses who were present at the execution of the document and who also witnessed each other sign the Will. Anyone who is at least eighteen (18) years old (or is an emancipated minor) and who is of sound mind may make a Will. The witnesses have to be persons who do not receive anything under a Will. Although the process may seem simple enough, it is important that it is done right so that there are no issues if the Will is contested in Court.
