Aldrich Law Firm, PLLC — For Your Estate Plan, Will And Trust In San Antonio
Considerations for drafting and executing a last will and testament include:
- Decedent — a deceased person
- Testator — the person making a will
- Beneficiary — a person named in a will who will receive estate property
- Executor — the person named in a will who is charged with probating the will, distributing estate property to beneficiaries and finalizing your affairs
- Estate — the property and debts of a decedent at the time of their death
- Probate — the legal process validating a decedent’s will and authorizing administration of the estate
- Administration — the process of managing an estate after probating a will
The two most important parts of a will are the beneficiaries and the executor. The beneficiaries are the individuals who will receive property from your estate. An executor is the person charged with carrying out the terms of a will. Beneficiaries and executors should be clearly defined in the will.
