What is a Louisiana Simple Will?

A Louisiana Simple will is a testamentary document that provides a set of instructions, to both your family and to the Louisiana probate court, on how you’d like your Louisiana estate to be handled.  Most Louisiana simple wills provide clear instructions on how the testator, (the person making a simple will), would like their property distributed after his or her death. In addition, a Louisiana simple will can also serve several other functions.  In addition to directing how assets are to be distributed, a Louisiana simple will can also do the following things:

  • Name an executor or personal representative of their Louisiana estate plan
  • Name guardians for minor children
  • Provide how debts and taxes are to be paid
  • Give instructions on how pets should be cared for
  • Name beneficiaries of the estate
  • Specify how assets are to be distributed
  • Make your wishes know
