Last Will and Testament

What is a Last Will and Testament?
A Last Will and Testament is a legal document that names the executor of your estate and instructs the executor on what is to be done with your assets. Additionally, a Will also provides for guardianship of minor children in the event of your death. Although some wills may not need to go through the probate process, many financial institutions that hold your assets will require a Will to be probated.

Probate Process

The probate process proves that:

a) the deceased made the will;
b) that the will is valid and authentic and appoints an executor to administer the will; or
c) if the person dies without a will, the probate process will appoint an estate trustee.
