Kansas Last Will and Testament: What Is It?

A Last Will and Testament is a document that a person, known as a Testator, will create to ensure that their assets and belongings are properly passed down to whomever they wish to receive them once they pass away. This legal document prevents unwanted individuals from coming in and taking property or assets that were not intended for them. For example, John Smith may create a Will that leaves his entire estate to his minor children.
