Is a handwritten last will & testament legal?

When it comes to legal documents, it’s impossible to know what you have to do without the help of a specialist. Is a handwritten Will a legal document? The problem is that not many lawyers know how to deal with this issue. Here are some points that you should know:

  • If the document is handwritten it is not necessarily invalid. There are judges who accept these documents, as long as they fulfill the other requirements.
  • The document needs to be very clear. A court cannot accept a document if it is not clearly and concisely written. The pages need to be clearly identified; if there is any sign that the document has been altered in any way, it will not be accepted. One good way is to number the pages 1 of 5, 2 of 5, etc.
  • The document needs to be signed by two witnesses. This is very important part; if there are two people who can state that they were witness to the document when it was written and they sign, they are testifying that they also know the handwriting to be of the writer.
  • Proof that the author was not under influence of any drugs or mentally unstable. There has to be a proof that the person who wrote the Will did so of sound mind and forethought. Medical documents might be provided. The doctor can testify and state that the person was completely healthy and did not have any diseases that would influence his judgment.
