Estate planning can be accomplished through a will. There must be some testamentary intent to create a will. For instance, I, name, declare the to be my last will and revoke any previous wills or codicils. Also a will is not operative until the testator’s death. It cannot be operative during the testator’s life. There are three formal requirements for an attested will. First the will must be signed by the testator. The testator is the person who created the will. Second there must be at least two witnesses above the age of 14 and the witnesses need to be credible. Third the witnesses who subscribe their names must do so in the presence of the testator. Read more on our website EDL News.
