What Do I Include in a Will?

Creating a will under Virginia law involves several key components to ensure your wishes are clearly outlined and legally binding.

  • Personal Information: Include your full name, address, and a statement declaring the document your last will and testament. This section confirms your identity and intent.
  • Executor Appointment: Name an executor who will manage your estate, pay debts, and distribute assets according to your will. Choose someone you trust to handle these responsibilities.
  • Guardianship for Minor Children: If you have minor children, appoint a guardian to take care of them if you pass away. This ensures that your children are cared for by someone you trust.
  • Asset Distribution: Clearly state how you want your assets, including property, money, personal belongings, and any other significant items, distributed among your beneficiaries.
  • Specific Bequests: List any specific items or amounts of money you wish to leave to particular individuals or organizations. This can include family heirlooms, jewelry, or charitable donations.
  • Residue Clause: Include a clause that addresses any remaining assets not explicitly mentioned in your will. This ensures that all your property is distributed according to your wishes.
  • Signatures and Witnesses: Your will must be signed by you and witnessed by at least two individuals who are not beneficiaries. This makes the document legally binding.

Including these elements in your will provides clarity and helps prevent disputes among your loved ones after passing. Working with an attorney ensures that your will meets all legal requirements and accurately reflects your wishes.
