Writing A Will For Effective Estate Planning In California

There are two ways to write a will and a few basic steps to create a document that stands up in probate court. Statutory Wills vs. Holographic Wills California’s residents have choices to make when creating a will, including the option to use the state government’s forms. However, you can also choose to write the will yourself. Statutory Wills The California legislature created a statutory will using a standardized form for you to fill in the blanks, date, and sign. It requires two witnesses who will observe the document’s creation and sign themselves. While these wills seem simpler at face value, the strict format can limit estate planning considerably. Not all states accept the validity of these documents, and the will might still require legal guidance where complexities exist. Holographic Wills If there are no witnesses or notaries available or wanted, California residents also have the option to create a holographic will. The creator must handwrite this document—typed and illegible sections are invalid. The writer of the will must also sign and date each page. A holographic will is liberating, allowing the creator to include more complicated details and cover a larger scope for their estate planning wishes.
