Last Will and Testament
Last Will and Testament Attorney in Jacksonville, FL
A Last Will and Testament is a legal document that specifies how a person's assets and property should be distributed after their death. It can also include instructions for the care of minor children and the appointment of a guardian for them. It is a way for a person to have control over what happens to their possessions and loved ones after they pass away. In order to be valid, a Last Will and Testament must be in writing, signed by the person making the will (called the "testator"), and witnessed by at least two other people. The witness must be present when the testator signs the will and must sign the will themselves. Without a will, the distribution of a person's assets and the care of their minor children may be left to the laws of the state in which they lived, which may not align with the person's wishes. A Last Will and Testament can also help to avoid disputes among family members or beneficiaries over the distribution of the person's assets. In the absence of a Will, assets are distributed according to state laws and the courts. In the event you pass without a Will, typically, your spouse, children, parents, or other close relatives will become the beneficiaries of your estate.
