Wills & Probate
Can I write my own will?
- In every state, it is legal to write your own will, but doing so is not always the best choice. Individuals who self-execute wills can wind up drafting a document that is unenforceable in whole or in part. Common problems include faulty execution, vague terms, unenforceable terms and partial intestacy. An estate planning attorney near you can provide additional guidance on how to write a valid will.
