My kids are financially secure
I am 67 years.....net worth about $1,000,000. Estranged from children.. I am so sorry..think I will give my two daughters $10,000 each and the rest divided between my significant other and a charity.Since I am single and will be dead when will is read, I don't really care about living trust. I plan to use Nolo Press to make will.QUESTION: My question is who do I give will to so that when I pass on the will is used? I would give it to whoever is the executor OR, put it in a safe deposit box with a copy to the executor, along with instructions on where to get the original. The executor (who you may choose to be your significant other) will NEED that original to probate the will. She will also have incentive to ensure it gets probated, since she is a beneficiary.
I am not sick and don't plan or dying. Good for you! But it is always good to plan for the unexpected.Patrick
Optional Information: State/Country relating to question: California Already Tried: Nolo press
I assume if we end relationship I can write another will, give it to someone else, and the newest will will be executed.
Thanks for the answers.

not mean ...the picture of you in red blouse makes you look sleepy...not mean.
