What Is A Will

A document a person creates to express his or her legal wishes for the disposition of his or her assets and liabilities upon death is called a will.  Under State law a will must contain certain provisions and statements, and the maker's signature must be witnessed by two disinterested parties.  (see Legal Kits)

Under common law, which is the basis of the U.S. legal system, an individual has the right to determine what happens to his or her assets after death.  In many parts of the world an individual has little say over the way his or her estate will be handled.
