What Is A Will?

Next » « Previous


A Will (also known as a Last Will and Testament) is a legal document that gives you control over what happens to your property after your death, including who receives your assets and who will make sure your wishes are carried out.

A will is not valid until it is declared by a court known as a probate court to be valid. Before a will is declared valid, people who would receive your property if you died without a will are usually given a chance to challenge the validity of the will. A lawyer is not necessary to challenge the validity of a will.
