A Nevada last will and testament is a legal document in which a testator (the person to whom the will belongs) sets forth into writing how they would like their property to be distributed upon their death. A will allows the testator to record instructions regarding the after-death distribution of their real and property, life insurance policies, digital assets, fiduciary accounts, cash-on-hand, and much more. Through making a will, a testator will name beneficiaries of their estate; some of the common individuals considered beneficiaries include spouses, children, friends, and even charitable organizations. Will documents must be signed by the testator in the presence of two (2) separate witnesses under Nevada law in order to be legally binding. Both witnesses must provide their signatories on the document as well. Though optional, a will can be acknowledged by a state-authorized notary public to further protect its legality.
