What is an Oral Will or Nuncupative Will?

This is a spoken Will telling someone how you want your estate distributed on your death.

This is a spoken Will not written. You tell someone how you want your estate distributed on your death.

A Will may be made orally if it is a privileged will (a will which can be made by a member of the armed forces employed in an expedition or engaged in actual warfare). It is highly undesirable to make an oral Will, as it can be difficult to acquire probate from the Courts. Ideally a Will should be made in writing.

These are also called deathbed Wills.
