It is important that your last will and testament forms be legal documents that are designed specifically for the state in which they will be executed, because laws governing last will and testament documents vary from state to state. States do not dictate who can benefit from your legal will or how your assets must be divided among heirs. However, your will must be compliant with the laws of the state in which it is executed in order to be valid.

Last Will and Testament laws may govern:

  • Who can make a last will
  • Witness requirements
  • Who may be a witness
  • Procedures for executing a will
  • Conditions under which a will can be revoked
  • Acceptability of separate documents allowing for division of tangible assets
  • Impact of marriage, birth, divorce, etc.
  • Situations under which a last ill may be declared void
  • Procedures for contesting a will

If you move from one state to another, it is very important that you update your will to be certain that it is compliant with the last will and testament laws of your new home state. You can always amend your Will with a codicil to will.
