A will is an important legal document and it should be written properly because there are many countries where the will if not written in the proper format and method becomes invalid and the property of the individual who had written the will becomes useless and invalid. The will is usually written to transfer various things like the property of an individual. It is also used to transfer many other assets like the ornaments of the person, immovable and movable assets of the individual.

The will also identifies the legal heir of the person who has written the will. These are the various reasons for writing the will. The will that is a legal document can vary from one country to another. It may not always be similar. A properly written will, will have no problems, but if the will is not written in the proper steps, then it can cause various problems after the death of the individual who write the will.

The various steps involved in writing the will are as follows:

1. Attorney:

The will should ideally be written in the presence of a attorney because only when you write the will in the presence of the attorney will the person be able to vouch for the genuineness of the will. This makes it very important that as far as possible, the attorney is present. There are certain times at which the individual may not have the attorney present and this may be considered to be okay by certain countries.

2. The signature of the will writer:

The person who is writing the will should make sure that the will has his or her signature affixed on the will. Only when the sign is present is the will a legal document. If the signature is not present, then the will is only a paper with no validity. The signature should be affixed on each and every paper of the will to make the document valid. There are certain wills where the signature can be present only on the last page of the will. This depends on the law of the land in the country where the will was written.

3. The witness to the will:

There should be a witness who is present when the will is being written and the witness should be a person who does not benefit in any way from the will. This is very important. So only a person who gains nothing from the will can be a witness to the will. The signature of the witness also needs to be present on the will. This will make sure that the person has made a proper will.

4. The paper that is used to write the will:

The will should be written only on a stamp paper in many countries. This means that the paper is a government paper and is a legal document. The ordinary paper should not be used to write the will, but it may be allowed under exceptional circumstances.

These are the various steps in writing a will.
