Under New Jersey law, a will is defined as “the last will and testament of a testator or testatrix and includes any codicil and any testamentary instrument that merely appoints an executor, revokes or revises another will, nominates a guardian, or expressly excludes or limits the right of a person or class to succeed to property of the decedent passing by intestate succession.”  See N.J.S.A. 3B1-2.  Preparation for the future of your family should include a will and any other necessary documentation.
