What is a Last Will and Testament?

Writing a "will" is probably one of the smartest things you can do. This document tells lawyers and others how you want your property distributed. It speeds up the probate time because the courts don't have to guess how you want your property divided.

Why should I make a Last Will and Testament?

Here are a few reasons why making a last will and testament is a good idea.
  • Make your wishes known to your heirs and beneficiaries; and let those who aren't getting anything know, too
  • Prevent your property from reverting back to the government
  • Protect your children - adopted and natural

Have the following information available:

  • Names and addresses of everyone mentioned in the will
