Updated September 09, 2022

A Wyoming last will and testament is a legal document set forth by a testator (the person creating their will) providing instructions for how their estate shall be distributed upon death. All aspects of the testator’s estate, such as financial accounts, fiduciary funds, life insurance policies, as well as real, personal, and even digital property, can all be bequeathed to beneficiaries as stipulated on the testator’s will and carried out by the chosen executor. A testator ensures peace of mind when creating a will as it protects their estate and transfers portions or all to the desired individuals. Beneficiaries are usually spouses, children, friends, blood relatives, and charitable organizations.

A will must be signed by the testator in the presence of two (2) or more witnesses in order to be legally executed under Wyoming law. Both these witnesses will also provide their signatories after attestation. Though optional, a testator can have their will acknowledged by a state-authorized notary public for another layer of legal protection.
