Can I Make A Joint Will With My Spouse ?

 

A joint Will cannot be made in the sense that there cannot be just one document. However, spouses can make Wills which dispose of property in an identical way. These are called mirror Wills and each testator can alter his or her Will. These Wills can be made in a legally binding, contractual agreement by inserting provisions into the Wills that the testators will not alter their Wills. There can be alterations by mutual agreement while the testators are still alive, but mutual Wills will usually include provisions which will sanction the testator who alters his or her Will after the other testator has died.
