Statutory Requirements for a Valid Will
Wills are governed by a state law; thus, what may be required in one jurisdiction may not be required in another. In this assignment, we will examine different states’ requirements for wills. It seems confusing to have different standards. Why is that? Can these be standardized, somehow?
Prepare a checklist that lists the statutory requirements for a valid will in your state as well as a neighboring state. Use the template to create the checklist. Make a note at the top of the checklist as to which state it refers to. Click here to download and review the template.
