Writing a will is usually a personal process, however it requires the presence and input of a few people such as witnesses, an executor and possibly a lawyer. Lawyers can write and examine wills on a client’s behalf. Some law firms go the extra mile to store copies of wills for clients. The witnesses are required to sign your will, showing that they indeed saw you giving your last instructions. Next up are the executors. Attorney at Law, Terje Sherman from the Conveyancing and Probate Department of the Law firm Nunes Schoefield Deleon and Co Partners, explains that executors play a crucial part of the will writing process.
