Typed or printed wills in Arizona require two witnesses. Their signatures signify that they saw the testator prepare or sign the will.
It is also crucial that those with children consider guardianship when creating a will. What happens if both parents pass away and leave no directions about care for the children? In that case, a judge decides who cares for them. If you have minor children, your will should clearly spell out who cares for your children if you cannot. A guardianship term in a will is generally binding.
Making wills can be a difficult process, and an attorney can help ensure your assets go to the people you care about – not to the government or unintended recipients.

Our blog posts contain general information about legal issues and developments in the law. Our posts, however insightful, do not constitute legal advice.

You should consult with an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction (not our clever blogs) for advice on specific legal issues.
