A Last Will and Testament is a legally enforceable document that allows someone (often referred to as a Testator) to pass their belongings to their beneficiaries once they pass away. A Will can provide specific details as to which assets will be passed to which individual, and can also go into detail about funeral home arrangements and last meal specifications. Testators can delegate exactly how much of their assets will be passed down to each individual beneficiary, and can even leave their estates to charity if they so choose. This document is legally enforceable as long as it is signed by two Witnesses and notarized by a Notary Public, and can be upheld in court if any disagreements occur.
