A will is a crucial legal document that serves two primary purposes. Firstly, it designates an individual to manage your estate after you pass away, and secondly, it specifies who should inherit your assets.
In Idaho, for a will to be legally valid, it must be written, signed by the testator, and signed by two witnesses. A will that is entirely written in the testator’s handwriting and signed by the testator (holographic will) can also be considered valid. However, even minor errors in a will can lead to costly legal disputes and the possibility of the will being declared invalid. It is essential to hire an experienced estate planning attorney to ensure that your will is drafted correctly and complies with all legal requirements.
It is important to note that a will only becomes effective after the testator’s death and can be changed or revoked as long as the testator has the mental capacity to make legal decisions.
