 Will kits

This range of New Zealand Wills provide for various situations (number of children, spouse) and a document check list.

There are many good reasons for making a will. A will records who you (the "testator") wish to benefit from your estate (that is, your assets). You can provide for people - such as friends - who would not be entitled to anything from your estate if you died without a will. If you die without a will (called dying "intestate"), the law dictates who will receive your assets after you die.

What should go in the will?

The most important things to provide for in your will are who will be your executors, and who will be the beneficiaries of your assets. You should also consider how you would like your property to be distributed should your spouse or partner die at the same time as you.

Aside from these matters, wills commonly provide for such things as:

  • particular funeral arrangements, such as whether you wish to buried or cremated. These wishes are not strictly binding on the executor, but they will generally be followed.
  • donation of body parts for medical use
  • who is to look after your dependant children (this is not binding).
