This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 3 pages.

Part 1 chapter 43 1. Will is created for a person that wishes to know what will happen to their property after they pass. This legal document is created to make it easier for families to go through person property, real property of gifts when someone dies. 2. Tennie was an eighty-yr. old woman who was on her way to being hospitalized for an illness, prior to be admitted she wanted to have her neighbors create a will for her so he son Calvin would be able to obtain all if her personal property. Since Tennie failed to place the phrase “last will and testament” on the document the will was contested. Since the phrase is part of state law for wills Tennie would have to have had it placed on the document she had written. You could argue that is was a will and was intended to be the last will and testament. Since Tennie failed to place that phrase on the document and it is required by state law to have that on the document the will would be invalid. 3. Whether a will is written long before someone passes or right before, the courts should recognize them. From personal experience it is discouraging for a court to rule that you are not able to obtain a property or gift after a loved one’s death just because it was not valid because one item or phrase was left off. A will is beneficial for individuals that want to make sure that their property goes to the correct people after their death. It gives your family peace of mind after a death. Part 2 Chapter 42 1. Life insurance is a type of insurance a person can obtain in order to have a payout of money to a family member after their death.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
