A Last Will and Testament is a written document by which a person assigns how their assets will be distributed after their death.
Drawing up a professional Last Will should be done in the presence of an attorney or notary. A Last Will is dictated by the testator. There are different Last Will forms considered legal under Thai Law. It is in your best interest to make sure that your Last Will corresponds to these forms. If not, your Last Will could very well be deemed as void by a Thai Court.
The most important aspect of a Last Will is that it respects and honours your intentions after your death. Your Last Will should include the specific dispositions on how you wish to distribute your property, along with clauses pertaining to your funeral arrangements. Finally, it is important to appoint an administrator of estate, often called the executor or trustee in Common Law countries.
