Last Will & Testament
An instrument by which a person designates how they would like their real and personal property divided after they die. This document is used when the person has died. A Last Will & Testament allows the person who dies (Testator/Testatrix) to choose a person (Executor/Executrix) who will be responsible for carrying out their wishes in the Will. If a person dies without a will, the State will determine who will be responsible for the distribution of the deceased’s property and all other assets (Estate), which may or may not be what the Deceased person intended.
