An Indiana last will and testament is a legal document used to ensure an individual’s property and assets are properly distributed among their chosen beneficiaries upon death. A testator (person to whom the will belongs) can leave behind detailed instructions on how their personal and real property, fiduciary assets, and even digital property is to be dispersed among loved ones. Beneficiaries of the will are typically spouses, children, friends, blood relatives, charitable organizations, and any other individual or entity that the testator wishes inherit a portion of their estate. Under Indiana law, wills must be signed by the testator in the presence of two (2) witnesses; both witnesses must also sign the document. Though optional, the testator may have the document notarized for extra legal protection.
