A will is a legally binding document that identifies who will inherit a person’s property after they die. A common example of a recipient is a spouse, children, grandchildren, or a charitable organization. Many wills also contain provisions that name a guardian to care for minor children. A person who makes a will is called a testator.
It’s important to have a clear will that you are comfortable with because your will affects the people who you care about the most. Without a will in place, there are no guidelines as far as who inherits what. Oftentimes, this can create family turmoil. The last thing a family needs after a loved one passes away is to fight over property.
