Wills

A Will is a legal document that directs the distribution of your assets after your death and can appoint guardians for your minor children. You can have a holographic Will, which is a Will that is entirely in your handwriting. You can have an attested Will, which is a Will that is not in your handwriting and is witnessed by at least two disinterested witnesses. Tennessee is very specific about how an attested Will is signed, so it is always advisable to have a lawyer handle the signing of your Will. If you die without a Will, Tennessee's law directs the distribution of your assets after your death.
