Wills / testamentary disposition

Few testators would distribute their estate using the intestate line of succession; most would prefer to decide who inherits what, and how. In a will or contract of inheritance, you can name your heirs, leave instructions to apportion the estate, bequeath legacies, stipulate requirements and execution of a will, and you can even make provisions in the event an heir dies by naming alternate heirs, final heirs or initial and subsequent heirs. Testamentary dispositions may also need to take account of forced heirship.

Testamentary dispositions include:

Last will and testament
Joint will of spouses
Contract of inheritance
