Last Will and Testament Online
A Last Will and Testament is also known as a/an:
- Last Will
- Will and Testament
What is a Will?
A Will is a legal document that allows you to control how your estate will be distributed after you pass away. Your estate is your net worth (the sum of your assets minus any liabilities).
A Last Will can also help you to communicate important instructions, like who will become the guardian(s) of your children or pets. These days, you don’t have to go through the hassle of going to a physical law office or going back and forth with a lawyer. You can get a last will & testament form online in 15 minutes or less.
Do I need a Will?
It is recommended that you create a Last Will if:
- You have specific people in mind who you would like to leave certain gifts to.
- You think there may be disputes or confusion regarding the distribution of your estate.
- You have children or pets and want to name a potential guardian for after you pass away.
- You have no living relatives and do not want your property to go to the state.
- If you pass away without a Last Will (meaning you died “intestate”), your assets are distributed to your heirs by a court-appointed administrator in accordance with state law.
Who are the parties in a Last Will?
A testator (or testatrix), executor, and beneficiary are all parties in a Last Will.
Who is a testator?
A testator (or testatrix) is the person who creates a Last Will and whose property is distributed after they pass away.
Who is an executor?
An executor, sometimes called a personal representative, is the person who carries out your wishes according to your Last Will.
Who is a beneficiary?
When you create a Last Will, you designate beneficiaries who will receive assets (such as money, property, or a portion of your estate) when you pass away.
A beneficiary can be a person or an organization (like a charity). In rare cases, a beneficiary can also be a place (like a community garden or a town).
Why should I appoint a guardian in my Last Will?
If you have children or pets, you should name someone who will be responsible for them after you pass away. Otherwise, the courts may appoint a caregiver for you.
A guardian should be:
- A legal adult (i.e. over the age of majority in the jurisdiction where they live)
- Competent (i.e. physically and mentally able to care for the children or pets)
- Willing to act as a guardian for your children or pets
- Financially capable of supporting your children or pets
- It’s also recommended that your children (or pets) have an existing relationship with the guardian you’re considering and are comfortable around them.

When should you update your Last Will?

- Someone named in your Last Will (like your executor) has passed away
- You move to a new state or country
- You purchase or sell assets (such as your house or vehicle)

Do you need a Power of Attorney and a Last Will?
It is a good idea to have a Power of Attorney, sometimes called a POA, and a Last Will.
A Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows you to give someone the authority to make decisions on your behalf while you are still alive whereas a Last Will lets you communicate your wishes after you’ve passed.
What is the difference between a Living Will and a Last Will?
A Living Will, sometimes called a Health Care Directive, is used to disclose your health care wishes (like whether you want to be resuscitated) while you still alive but are unable to speak for yourself. For example, if you are in a coma.
Alternatively, a Last Will is used to distribute your property and convey instructions after you pass away.
