How To Use
This is a simple will and useful for that reason. Be sure to complete this if you have no other will. This provides a wonderful starting point. To take pressure off yourself, make a new will at the same time you have to renew your driving license. Consider it an ongoing process so you don’t try to anticipate all future events. Just take care of the next 3 to 5 years and then do a new will. You can give no greater gift to your heirs, should you die early, than to have a will in place to avoid all the problems of dying without one.
- Have three witnesses witness your signing. Have a notary witness the signatures. This covers the requirements of all states and insures your heirs do not have a problem if state laws change, which they do.
- Make multiple copies. Keep one in a home safe. Keep one off premises. Give your spouse a copy or the person closest to you.
- Note that we have only provided one Last Will and Testament form. This is done because we can only provide the skeleton of the document. The most important step is to enact it. Then it is up to you to provide for the level of specificity you desire. Rather than attempt to present a variety of wills for your review, we believe it simpler to provide a standard will and advise you to seek legal counsel if you want to make it too much more complex. In addition, remember to reduce your stress consider doing a will that will cover just the next few years, as suggested above, and then modify it to fit your later circumstances such as having children or your children leaving home.
