Ask a Lawyer

Get legal advice from Rocket Lawyer On Call® attorneys. We make it affordable and simple.

Last will forms name a particular individual who will be responsible for carrying out the terms of the document, usually referred to as the executor. The document names the individuals or organizations that receive your property following your death, and specifies how assets will be divided among these beneficiaries. Wills should also designate who will assume guardianship responsibility of any minor children in the event that neither parent is alive or able to serve as guardian.

The do-it-yourself estate planning legal forms available from Rocket Lawyer include the documents necessary to prepare your last will and testament, power of attorney, and living will documents. Many of these documents need to be signed by witnesses. You can also use Rocket Lawyer to find a lawyer to review your documents.
