If you don’t want your closest blood relatives to end up in a court disputing on your assets after your death, the best way is to hire a legal expert or a lawyer to write down your will in a way which is legally-sound and safe and clearly depicts your intentions about your assets, bank balance, and other property. However, most of the people prefer writing their will all by themselves. If you’re one of them, you should consider one of the two options to get it done. You can either write it on a computer or a typewriter, or you can use an online program or the drafts available online to perfectly draft your last words to your dear ones.

Follow the below-mentioned steps to write your legal will in an efficient manner.
- The document should have a clear headline, i.e. “Last Will and Testament” or something like that to clearly tell the readers the purpose of what is stated in it. Then you should put your full name and complete address and state clearly in a line that you’re over the age of 18, have sound mental health, and not writing the document under duress. You must also state clearly that the document revokes any wills made in the past. An online program will fill in this introduction for you once you populate the required fields.
- Write clearly the name of an executor, who will execute the will after your death. Most of the married persons write down the name of their spouse as the executor while mostly people state the name of one of their reputed friend.
- Your will should clearly mention the names of legal heirs who would get your assets and money after your demise.
- If you have minor kids, you should also mention the name of a person who will act as a guardian until the children are young enough to take over the assets from him.
- You should put all the details of your assets which you’re going to distribute in the will among your relatives.
- Never forget to put your signatures at the end of the document. Getting your signed will attested from the local legal authorities is also a great idea to make it an authentic document.
- Apart from your signature, the will should also contain the signatures of at least two witnesses for giving your will validity.
