A Washington last will and testament is a legal document that allows a “testator,” the creator of the will, to set forth instructions for the distribution of their estate upon death. Assets and property for distribution may include businesses, digital assets, real estate, personal property, life insurance policies, and more. Generally, assets are distributed to continue the financial security of the testator’s immediate and extended family, including spouses, children, relatives, and friends. Testators may also choose to make charitable donations.

After the testator has constructed the will to their satisfaction, it must be signed in the presence of two (2) witnesses, both of whom will also sign the document. Revisions and revocations to the will can be made by a testator of sound mind at any time.
