A Minnesota last will and testament is a legal document that allows a testator (the person to whom the will belongs) to set forth instructions on how to distribute their assets among designated beneficiaries upon death. In their will, a testator may choose those who inherit certain property; typically, a testator’s beneficiaries are spouses, children, friends, blood relatives, and even charitable organizations. The testator may also name an executor or personal representative in order to appoint a trusted individual with carrying out the will. Under Minnesota law, a will requires the presence of two (2) witnesses at the time of execution and signing. Both witnesses will sign the will to affirm their acknowledgment of the testator’s signature. Though optional, a testator can have the document notarized to add an extra layer of legal protection. Wills may be amended or revoked at any time.
