Where there’s a Will…

One local attorney-at-law believes persons are not generally aware of the importance of wills. However, the persons who tend to be aware of the importance usually come from “the upper middle and upper class” of society (as it correlates to assets that are acquired in the person’s lifetime and how they intend to leave it upon their death).

Jean-Louis Kelly at Caribbean Commercial Law Chambers told Catholic News wills must conform with certain statutory requirements as prescribed by the Wills and Probate Act. For instance, a will must be executed in front of two witnesses (both being over the age of majority) and all persons must countersign in each other’s presence.

Additionally, if a person named in the will or their spouse is a witness then the will is void and will be “set aside”.
