Common Last Will & Testament Questions
- Does anyone else need to sign my will besides me?
Does anyone else need to sign my will besides me?
A properly executed will almost always requires that witnesses, in addition to the maker of the will, actaully sign the document. Most states require two or more witnesses to attest and sign a will. The signature of a notary public can also make a will self-proving, thus obviating the need to bring witnesses to court to prove the validity of a will.×
- What do I do if I want to change my will?
What do I do if I want to change my will?
Depending on what state you are in, there are usually several ways to revoke a will. You can revoke a will by making a new will, which replaces all prior wills. Another option is to make a codicil to your will. A codicil is like an amendment to your will. A codicil does not completely replace a previous will, but it modifies or supplements a will that is already in existence. When making a new will or a codicil to a will, you must comply with all of the formalities required by state law. Another way to revoke a will, in some states, is to simply destroy the will by tearing it up or burning it.×
- How old do I have to be to make a valid will?
How old do I have to be to make a valid will?
The laws of each state vary with respect to age requirements to make a valid will.
