Who Should Register a Last Will & Testament or Living Will?

It is highly recommended that you or your attorney register your last will and testament.  Relying on a verbal disclosure of your will’s location is not enough.  People tend to forget things, even these important bits of information.  So, don’t rely on just telling someone - make it a matter of certainty.

Lawyers may offer to register a will’s location on behalf of their client especially if they work closely with them.  Assisted Living Facilities & Nursing Homes should also encourage their residents to register their wills.

What if I don’t have a will?
