What is a Will?
A will, sometimes called a “last will and testament,” is a document that states your final wishes. It is read by a town probate court after your death. The court makes sure that your final wishes are carried out.
Will vs. Last Will and Testament
A “Will” and a “Last Will and Testament” are the same. A Will or a Last Will and Testament is a document that states your final wishes. It is read by a county court after your death, and the court makes sure that your final wishes are carried out.
