This last will and testament form, which has been prepared and approved by lawyers, is for use by a person who is neither married nor in a registered partnership, has minor children and wishes to leave his/her residuary estate to his/her children.
The form comes complete with step-by-step instructions on completing your will; and will allow you to make a last will and testament quickly and easily without the need or expense of engaging your own lawyer.
The form will enable you to:
- Make cash and specific item gifts to your loved ones.
- Appoint alternate beneficiaries.
- Appoint executors.
- Release people from debts.
- And much more.
A last will & testament provides for the transfer of your “estate” following your death. Your estate is everything you own – your house, car, savings, possessions, and more.
Your will allows you to gift these items as you see fit. Whatever is left over after you have made all your cash and specific item gifts, and paid all your debts and taxes, is called your “residuary estate”. This is often the largest part of your estate and is also specifically gifted to one or more people under your will.
You can also use your will to make funeral arrangements, appoint guardians to look after your children, appoint property guardians to oversee any inheritances received by minors, designate assets to be used in the payment of debts and taxes, and much more.
If you don’t make a will, the intestacy laws of your state will decide on how your property will be distributed after you die, and even who will care for your children when you are no longer around.
The last will and testament form on this webpage is for use by someone who is neither married nor in a registered partnership, and who has minor children.
In this will, you can leave specific gifts and legacies to people, organizations and charities named in your will. Your residuary estate (whatever is left over after you make these gifts) is then divided equally among your children. If any of your children are under a specified age (usually 18 or 21 years old, but you can choose any age you wish once it’s at least the age of majority in your state), then the trustees named in your last will and testament will hold the assets on trust for them until they reach the specified age of inheritance.
If you do not wish to leave your estate to your children, you can amend the provisions of your will or use one of the Last Will forms on this website for a person who is unmarried with no children. However, these will forms do not contain child guardianship provisions.
This Last Will & Testament form is a downloadable form in Word format. It comes complete with guidance instructions on how to fill in the form, as well as a Self-Proving Affidavit.
** Recommendation: If you are not completely familiar with making a will, we recommend that you purchase our Legal Will Kit instead. The kit not only contains all the forms necessary for you to make a Last Will & Testament but also includes a detailed overview of all of the items you need to consider when making a will.
