A will or testament is a legal document by which a person, the testator, expresses their wishes as to how their property and assets are to be distributed at death, and names one or more persons, the executor, to manage the estate until its final distribution.
The main purpose of a will is to ensure that the testator's wishes, and not the default laws of the state, will be followed upon the testator's death. As an expat this is vital to ensure your estate is fully protected.
Probate is the process of dealing with the estate of someone who has past away.
This generally means clearing their debts and distributing their assets in accordance with their will. Probate will be needed if the deceased person has not left a will.
