Will or Won’t?
What is a Will?
AKA: Last Will and Testament
A Will is a formal legal document that must conform to your state’s laws.
The term “Last Will and Testament” came from a time in English law when Old English and French Law language were used side by side for maximum clarity. Most new attorneys are taught to write with clarity and drop the redundancy.
When you die, your Will instructs your Personal Representative (sometimes called an Executor) and the courts how your money and property should be distributed to each person named in your Will.
