Is your Last Will and Testament executed properly? Better to know now than when it is too late!
If you have moved to North Carolina from another state, I would recommend you have your documents reviewed by an experienced estate planning attorney licensed in North Carolina. Each state has its own signing and witnessing requirements that must be made part of each Last Will and Testament for the Court to accept it as an original properly executed document.
I was reminded of how important this is yesterday when I met with clients who had out of state Wills that were only a few years old. Turns out that not only did the attorney forget to put his notary stamp when he notarized every ones signatures, but the will language itself was poorly drafted. Although the Clerk of Superior Court has methods of overcoming some drafting issues, why take the chance? Witnesses die, they move and cannot be located and attorneys retire.
