Formulate the will correctly.
How do I formulate my last will?
You write a personal will yourself. You must write it in handwriting and readable, with the place and date, as well as a unique heading, and end by signing it with your full name for your will to be valid. Not only formally, but also in terms of content, you have to pay attention to a few things when drafting your will. It is essential that you write your injunctions as clearly and in detail as possible so that there are no misinterpretations and disputes between your loved ones.
To give you an idea of what phrases might look like in your will, you will find some free samples for your will on this page. Please keep in mind that the general templates should serve as your first orientation. Each will is, of course, an individual matter, so if in doubt you should contact a lawyer or notary.
