Storing your Will

Careful thought must be taken in determining how to store the original copy of your will. Should you keep it in your possession and it cannot be located upon your death, the law will presume that you destroyed your will. If there is not enough evidence to rebut this presumption, the court will find that you had died without a will. Consequently, it may be advisable to ensure that your lawyer either keeps the original copy or prepares one or more copies for his or her file.
