Virginia residents do not need to include a self-proving affidavit when creating a will, although it is recommended. The testator and witnesses sign the affidavit as proof that the will was properly executed. Then the affidavit is notarized and attached to the will. If you do not create a self-proving affidavit, your executor will need to locate at least one of the will’s witnesses to confirm the will’s validity. The witness might be required to appear in probate court. By creating an affidavit, probate will be faster and easier. Your Northern Virginia wills attorney can create this affidavit for you if you wish to include it with your last will and testament.
Can You Change A Will?
You can change your will any time you wish as long as you are of sound mind and are doing so voluntarily. While you can amend an existing will, many people choose to create a new document when making changes. Making a new will invalidates the previous will. Contact us, your Northern Virginia wills attorneys for help if you need to change your will or create a new one. We will help you update your will to make sure it is legally binding.
