Updated September 09, 2022

A Utah last will and testament is a legal document in which a testator (the person to whom the will belongs) sets forth in writing how they would like their estate to be distributed among selected beneficiaries after their death. A will allows the testator to record directives regarding the distribution of their real and property, insurance policies, digital assets, fiduciary accounts, cash-on-hand, and more. In a will, the testator will name beneficiaries of their estate which may include spouses, children, friends, and even charitable organizations.

Wills must be signed by the testator in the presence of two (2) or more competent witnesses in order to be legally executed in the State of Utah. Both witnesses must also provide their signatories on the document. Though optional, a will can be acknowledged by a state-authorized notary public to further protect its legality. A will may be changed or revoked at the decision of the testator.
