Updated September 06, 2022

A Kansas last will and testament is a legal document that provides a testator (the person setting forth the will) the opportunity to outline how they would like their property and assets distributed upon death. A testator can determine how their real estate, fiduciary assets, personal property, and even digital property shall be dispersed among family, friends, and organizations– all according to the testator’s personal wishes and not those imposed by state law upon the death of an individual with no will. A will document in Kansas, once completed, must be signed by two (2) witnesses who have acknowledged the testator’s signature. The document can also be notarized if the testator wishes to add an extra and optional layer of legal protection.
