What is a Virginia Simple Will?

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

    • Name an executor or personal representative of their Virginia 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
