Questions and Answers About Wills

A will is a legal document directing the disposition of one's property (estate) after death. The person
whose property is distributed in the will is called the testator of the will. A will has no effect before the death of the testator. At any time before death, the testator may still give away or sell her property. The testator may also amend or revoke her will or put in effect an entirely new will at any time before her death, as long as she is mentally competent to do so.
