Wills are very personal, but a Will generally outlines:

  • Who you want to receive your assets and property, including identification of names as well as amounts;
  • An indication of who you do not want to get assets or property;
  • Who you wish to care for your children;
  • The person or people you would like to manage your estate distribution, ie the Executor;

It also includes:

  • Clearly identifiable information about you including any other names you’re known by;
  • Legal terminology to make it clear that this is your Will, usually referred to as Testamentary Intent;
