What is a Vermont Simple Will?

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

    • Name an executor or personal representative of their Vermont 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
