Making a Last Will and Testament in Idaho

  • What is an Idaho Last Will and Testament?

    An Idaho Last Will and Testament (a "Will") is a legal document that outlines your preferences in relation to property distribution after death, including who will inherit your home, personal belongings, or money.

    The person making a Will is called the "testator," and the people or organizations appointed to manage the testator's estate after death are called "executors." Suitable for Idaho residents, this Last Will and Testament is made for use in Ada County, Canyon County, Kootenai County, and in every other region in the state. Each Idaho Will from Rocket Lawyer can be modified for your specific scenario. With this essential document on hand, your executor(s) will have a record of your preferences.

  • How do I write a Will in Idaho?

    It is fast and easy to document your wishes using a free Idaho Last Will and Testament template from Rocket Lawyer:

    1. Make the document - Provide a few general details, and we will do the rest
    2. Send and share it - Discuss the document with an attorney, if needed
    3. Sign and make it legal - Optional or not, having two disinterested witnesses is ideal

    This solution is often going to be much more affordable than working with a traditional law firm. If needed, you may fill out this Last Will and Testament on behalf of your spouse or another relative, and then have that person sign it once you've drafted it. Please keep in mind that for this document to be accepted as legally valid, the testator must be an adult who is mentally competent at the time of signing. If the testator is already unable to make their own decisions, a court-appointed conservatorship might be necessary. In this scenario, it is important to connect with an attorney.

  • Do I need to have a Will?

    Every adult ought to have a Last Will and Testament in place. While it's unpleasant to acknowledge, your loved ones will need to know your preferences for guardianship (when applicable), your property, and your assets when you pass away. Here are a few common occasions where it would be helpful to make or update your Will:

    • You have experienced a change in marital status
    • You are aging or dealing with ongoing health issues
    • You have a new biological or adopted child
    • You own or recently bought/sold real estate

    Whether your Idaho Last Will and Testament is being generated as part of a long-term plan or produced as a result of a recent change in your life, witnesses and/or notarization often help to protect your document if a third party disputes its authenticity.

  • Do I need to hire an attorney to review my Will in Idaho?

    Writing a Will is usually simple to do; however, you or your executor might still have questions.

  • Does a Last Will and Testament need to be notarized or witnessed in Idaho?

    The specific rules and restrictions vary in each state; however, in Idaho, your Will requires the signatures of two witnesses. As a general principle, your witnesses should be at least 18 years old. Furthermore, it is strongly recommended that you have your Last Will and Testament acknowledged by a notary public in order to help reinforce its legitimacy.
