A Hawaii last will and testament is an estate-planning document that allows an individual, known as the “testator,” to leave detailed instructions on how their personal and real property, fiduciary accounts, and even digital property will be distributed upon their death. By drafting a will, a testator can designate the individuals who will inherit a portion, sometimes all, of the estate; the beneficiaries of the testator’s estate are typically spouses, children, blood relatives, and even charitable organizations. This document will require two (2) witness signatories, and both witnesses must be present when the testator signs and executes the document. A testator may have their will document notarized to add an extra layer of legal protection.
