Pennsylvania Last Will and Testament: What Is It?

A Last Will and Testament is a document that allows a person (called a Testator) to legally place in writing what is to happen to their assets, property, and belongings once they pass away. Generally, Testator’s will leave their belongings and assets to their children or their spouse, but a Will can be used to delegate assets and belonging to a church, charity, or even friends and other family members. These documents are legal and can be upheld in court should any disagreements between beneficiaries or financial institutions occur. In order for a Will to be legally enforced by the state of Pennsylvania, it must receive notarization, as well as signatures from two separate Witnesses.

Pennsylvania Last Will Laws

Laws - Title 20 (Decendants, Estates, and Fiduciaries)
