  • Executor: Designate an executor, the person responsible for managing your estate and ensuring your wishes are carried out.

  • Beneficiaries: List the individuals or entities (charities, organizations) that will inherit your assets. Specify their relationship to you and the assets they will receive.

  • Guardianship: If you have minor children, name a guardian to care for them in the event of your death.

  • Assets: Provide a detailed list of your assets, including bank accounts, real estate, investments, and personal property.

  • Debts and Taxes: Address how your debts, taxes, and funeral expenses should be paid from your estate.

  • Specific Bequests: If you have specific items you want to leave to certain individuals, specify these bequests.

  • Residuary Clause: Outline how the remainder of your estate should be distributed.

  • Digital Assets: Consider including instructions regarding your digital assets, such as social media accounts and online financial accounts.

  • Witnesses: Sign your will in the presence of witnesses (usually two in Delaware) who can attest to your mental capacity and willingness to create the will.

Remember that a well-drafted will is essential to ensuring your estate is distributed according to your wishes, so consulting with an attorney experienced in Delaware wills can be invaluable.
