Registration and enforcement of will

Registration and enforcement of will is the legal process of formally registering a person's last will and testament, and ensuring that their wishes are carried out after their death. This involves submitting a copy of the will to the relevant authority, such as a probate court or government agency, and enforcing the wishes and instructions of the deceased as outlined in their will. It is the responsibility of the executor or administrator to ensure that the will is enforced in accordance with the law and the deceased's wishes. These processes are essential to ensure that a person's wishes are respected and their estate is handled appropriately after their death.
