Utah Last Will and Testament Form

The Utah last will and testament is a legal document that would be completed by an individual (testator) to prepare, for the distribution of their estate. The document will allow the Testator to elect an executor to divide the estate after the testator’s death. The form will allow the Testator to also name all of their beneficiaries and list all of their information. The form must be completed while the testator is of sound mind and the executor must consider all of the written instructions as the division of the property takes place, in order to properly honor the Testator’s wishes. The form will require two witnesses in order to be legally effective per 75-2-502. It may also be revoked as the testator deems necessary.
