Types Of Wills
Family Law Attorney in Coeur d’Alene Specializing in Wills
A Holographic Will is a handwritten will that was prepared without witnesses. Few states recognize holographic wills, and only in certain circumstances. Oral Wills, also called “nuncupative wills,” are recognized in only a few states and usually only in compelling situations such as the impending death of a soldier in wartime.
A Self-Proving Will has been witnessed and signed with the formalities required by law. Your will should be updated if:
- You marry or divorce
- You give birth to or adopt a child
- When a family member or other beneficiary of your estate dies
- When someone you’ve named as an executor, trustee, or guardian is no longer able to fulfill that role
- When you decide to change an executor, trustee, or guardian
- When you want to change the way your property will be distributed
- When you move to another state
- When your net worth increases dramatically
