An ethical will is one way that New Jersey residents who are creating an estate plan may pass on their values to their family. It is separate from the will and other estate planning documents and might be thought of as a letter to family members describing the most important challenges and lessons of a person's life. While not legally binding, it may be an important part of an estate plan for some people.
