Will is the most common way for people to state their preferences about how their estates should be handled after their deaths. It is a legal document containing a statement of an individual’s wishes and intents to take effect following his death, and which can be revoked. Many people use their wills to express their deepest sentiments toward their loved ones. You can protect the people you love most, choose guardians for minor children, and make gifts to family, friends and charities.
Making a valid last Will and testament is the only way to ensure that your property passes to people of your choosing rather than to people chosen by the courts based on laws that are decades old. Without a will, the estate can be subject to many problems. Relatives may also dispute over property, leading to lengthy court proceedings, and a probate judge who does not know your personal wishes will dictate who gets your property and custody of your children after your death.
By having a valid will in Indonesia, you will have full control over how your assets (i.e. your estate) are managed and distributed after your death and who will look after your children when you are no longer around to do so. The clear terms of last will require no clarification and in the event they can be interpreted in several ways, the intent of the testator must be determined rather than interpreting the text literally.
