A will is the unilateral, personal and revocable judicial act through which a person, called a testator, rules for the time when he is no longer alive. A specific form of will regulated by law is the authentic will. It is characterized by the fact that the will of the testator is drawn up in authentic form, the testator is advised, and thus the will acquires the specific force of the authentic act. What differentiates the authentic will from other forms of will is the authentication procedure, which is described within this article. This procedure ensures the protection of the testator’s will, the full understanding of the effects of a legal act with death cause.
