Will Writing Part Two

You and the Law | September 6, 2019
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.

An arrest is the lawful detention of a citizen by a member of the Jamaica constabulary force. Once a person is placed under arrest their liberty is withheld. Additionally, you can be arrested and not charged. Criminal Lawyer with the Law firm A. McBean and Company, Craig Carter, says a person can be arrested solely on the basis of a report being made against them.
