Will is an instrument by which a person’s intention with respect to disposition of his property to take effect after his death is declared. The simple rule is that only the property owned by the testator can be given in a will and not joint family property or ancestral property or any other property that he does not own. A person’s last will and testament is the legal document that outlines a person’s last wishes pertaining to the distribution of his assets and possessions.
Making a will can be a simple process if written by himself/herself at home, but then it becomes difficult to prove it in a court if it is contested after the demise of the testator. Therefore, to reduce the ambiguity a testator can draft a will online. An online will maker can be used which permits you to draft, print and sign the last will and testament. Writing a will in one’s own handwriting is also valid if it is signed by two witnesses and is in accordance with the state law.
To legalize a will a probate is required. A probate of will is acquired when a court of competent jurisdiction certifies a copy of a will under its seal with a grant of administration of the property of the testator. A probate is only allocated to the executor of the will. An executor of will is a person who is the legal representative named in a will to carry out the process of the distribution of the assets mentioned post demise of the testator.
