Which Wyoming will option is right for you?

In Wyoming, you can either create your own will or hire an attorney. Wyoming estate planning attorneys charge anywhere from $300 to $1,000 to make a simple will. However, if you do not have particular concerns, such as a child with special needs or an estate worth over $5 million, then making your own will with FindLaw is a convenient, affordable option.

Quick, convenient, reliable Wyoming will

A will is your way to determine who will receive your property and assets and care for your minor children. In addition, having a will speeds up the probate process, saving your family time and money. If you do not have a will, Wyoming distributes your property according to its intestate succession rules. And the court decides who will care for your children.

Take control of these decisions with FindLaw’s self-guided interview to make your will your way. Choose for yourself who should receive your property, pick guardians for minor children, decide the age beneficiaries can access their inheritance, and safeguard your estate by explicitly disinheriting individuals you do not wish to inherit.

How do I make my will in Wyoming?

If you want a will, you can hire a lawyer or use a will form from a reliable source. If you use a form, follow these steps:

Look at your property and assets

The first step is to figure out all your assets and how you will give them away at your death. Some property passes outside of your will. Other property passes only through your will. For example, a bank account with a transfer-on-death (TOD) designation transfers outside your will.

Other assets that do not pass through your will are:

  • Bank and investment accounts with transfer-on-death beneficiaries
  • IRA and retirement accounts with transfer-on-death beneficiaries
  • Real estate owned in joint tenancy

The property or other assets that you distribute through your will are:

  • Real property in your name only
  • Cars, boats, or RV’s in your name only
  • Personal or household items and valuables

Name your beneficiaries

Next, you will determine your beneficiaries, those who will inherit your property and assets in the will. You can give someone a specific bequest or gift; such as cash, jewelry, or personal property. You will list the beneficiary and details about the item. You can instruct your personal representative to hold any bequest in trust for a beneficiary who is under 18. They will receive the inheritance once they reach a specified age.

Choose a personal representative

Next, you name someone to handle your estate. Your personal representative files paperwork with the probate court, pays off your debts, and distributes your assets according to your will. Choose someone trustworthy and organized to manage the responsibility.

Name a guardian for minor children

If you have children under 18, you should nominate a guardian to care for them until they become adults. This guardian will manage the support, education, healthcare, and maintenance of your child(ren).

Print and sign the document in front of witnesses

In Wyoming, you sign your will in front of two competent witnesses. Choose “disinterested” witnesses, meaning witnesses who will not receive anything from your will. You do not need a notary, but Wyoming allows you to use a “self-proving affidavit.” This is an affidavit that the witnesses and notary sign to authenticate the will.

You may want to speak with a lawyer if you:

  • Have a past divorce, blended family, or other complex family situation
  • Have a high-value estate
  • Own a business
  • Want to create a special needs trust
  • Want legal review of your completed will

Frequently asked questions about Wyoming last will and testaments

Yes, a valid will is your statement of wishes that conforms to your state’s laws. If you have straightforward wishes, you can use FindLaw’s simple interview process to draft your will. If you have a a complicated case or wish to speak to a lawyer, FindLaw can help you find a Wyoming estate planning attorney.

To make your will in Wyoming, you must be of 18 and of “sound mind.” Sound mind means you possess the mental capacity to understand what property you own, who your heirs are, and what property you are giving away in your will. You must also sign your will in the presence of two competent disinterested witnesses.

In Wyoming, a valid will does not require a notary. However, you must sign your will in the presence of two competent, disinterested witnesses. In addition, Wyoming allows you and your witnesses to execute a “self-proving” affidavit in front of a notary. This affidavit proves to the court that the will is authentic and speeds up the probate process.

A FindLaw will is a great start. However, other estate planning documents can help you throughout your life. For example, if you are suddenly hospitalized or incapacitated, who will handle your affairs? You can name someone to handle your finances and property with a power of attorney.

If you cannot make health care decisions for yourself, you can designate an agent to do so with a health care power of attorney. You can appoint someone to carry out your wishes for end-of-life care with a living will or advance directive. All of these forms are necessary to make a comprehensive estate plan.
