There seem to be two common types of do-it-yourself wills out there and both require the maker, or testator, to sign the document. The first is created using a will kit and contains a template. This one requires two witnesses to sign the will, in the testator’s presence, after the testator has signed it. The second,a holograph will, must be entirely in the testator’s handwriting and not be signed by anyone else but the testator. There are some other formalities to watch out for, too, and remember, having a valid will and having a will that clearly states your intentions and ensures that your wishes are observed are two different things. I encourage you to speak with a lawyer for advice regarding your situation and to ensure that your wishes are carried out.
