What is A Last Will and Testament?

A Last Will and Testament is a legal document that outlines an individual's wishes regarding the distribution of their assets and the care of their dependents after their death.

 

It typically appoints an executor to carry out these wishes and may also include provisions for guardianship of minor children, charitable donations, and specific instructions for the distribution of property.

 

A properly executed Will ensures that the deceased's intentions are honored and provides clarity and guidance for their loved ones during the probate process.

Last Will and Testament VS. Living Trust

A will may not be the best plan for you and your family as a will does not avoid probate when you die. A will must be validated by the probate court before it can be enforced.

 

A will can only go into effect after you die, it provides no protection if you become physically or mentally incapacitated. So the court could easily take control of your assets before you die.

 

There is a simple and proven alternative to a will; the revocable living trust. It avoids probate and lets you keep control of your assets while you are living if you become incapacitated, and allows your heirs to effectively manage your assets and estate after you die.

 

When you set up a living trust, you transfer assets from your name to the name of your trust, which you control and manage. You still keep full control of your estate. As a trustee of your trust, you can do anything you could do before -- buy and sell assets, change or even cancel your trust. That's why it's called a revocable living trust. You even file the same tax returns. Nothing changes but the names on the titles.

Basic Requirement for a Will:

1. Age

The person making the Will (Testator) must be at least 18 years old.

2. Capacity

The person must be of sound mind. 

3. Signature

A Nevada Will must be witnessed by two other people (not related) at the same time the person signs the Will. *Nevada law allows a Will to be signed, witnessed, and notarized electronically, or virtually, and still be legally valid. See NRS 163.0095 and NRS 13.085.

5. Writing

Must be in writing to be valid. Can be handwritten (holographic) or electronic as well. 

6. Beneficiaries
