Why I made a will

COVID-19 made me realize: I’m not immortal!
I didn’t want the kids to fight over the house.
A health scare made it clear. There was no time to delay.
My partner is my everything. I want her to have everything she needs.
Some things I can’t control. But this put me in the driver’s seat.
My dogs may need someone else to love them as much as I do.
It wasn’t just about money. I wanted my son to have the family Bible, and my baby girl to inherit her mother’s wedding ring.
I got divorced. Sometimes making a fresh start involves thinking about the end.
It felt right. I wanted to make sure my kids would be safe and cared for - and by someone I had chosen.
We welcomed our first child this year! Ensuring that she is cared for was our first priority.
I live with the worries of a chronic health condition. Making my wishes known is something I no longer have to worry about.
Surviving cancer taught me the value of life, and the importance of planning ahead.
I had put it off long enough! I feel so much better now.

When creating a will, you must possess the legal competency or mental capacity to do so.  Otherwise, the will may not be considered valid by the court. However, simply because someone has a mental illness or disease, that does not mean they automatically lack the required mental capacity.  In fact, if the testator has periods of clarity, he or she could still be considered competent at the time the will is executed, if it occurs during that period of lucidity.

The answer will depend on all of the circumstances in your situation, but there are living trust and testamentary trusts. Testamentary trusts are created in a will and take effect when you die. They can be used to manage the distribution of assets that weren't specifically dealt with in the last will and testament form, such as property you acquired later.

You should choose witnesses who are adults (at least 18 years old), are not named as beneficiaries, and are not the spouse of a named beneficiary in your will.

Executor(s) of your estate are entitled to payment, however, most executors who are close family members do not ask to be paid. In situations when an executor gets paid, probate courts decide what is reasonable pay based state laws. 


An executor, also referred to  as your personal representative, is named in your will as the person who will carry out your wishes after your death. Your personal representative pays your outstanding debts from your estate's assets and distributes your remaining assets (real and personal property) to heirs that you name as beneficiaries.

Yes, the executor of your will can also be a beneficiary or trustee of your estate. 

Your will needs to be witnessed by at least two people (three in Vermont) who are not named as beneficiaries in your will and are at least 18 years old. 


There are two ways to change your will: 

  1. Create a new will. There is no additional cost for a wills.com user to change a will.
  2. Add a codicil, a legal document that changes one or more parts of your will. The codicil needs to refer to the sections in your original will being changed. Codicils can add confusion and risk of challenges to your will.
    Just like a will, codicils need to be witnessed by at least two people who are not beneficiaries of either the codicil or your original will.
