Drawing up a testament

You need to draw up a testament if you wish that your property is to be distributed in some other manner than what is specified in the law. 

However, drawing up a testament is also advisable when you have direct descendants that you wish to treat equally. For instance, you can use the testament to rule that the spouse of a beneficiary will have no marital rights to the property and assets obtained through the testament.
