Massachusetts’ wills laws: Things to know

As a resident of Massachusetts, there may come a time when you need to create a will. Like most, you'll begin to think about this early in life as to give yourself the peace of mind you deserve.

Before you push forward, assuming you can do whatever you want in regards to creating a will, you need to understand the laws that surround this approach to estate planning.

Here are a few things you need to know:

  • A will is required to be in writing. Also, it should be signed by the testator, who must be a minimum of 18 years of age.
  • Along with the testator, two or more people must witness the signing of the will and also provide a signature.
  • It is possible to revoke a will in one of two ways: by destroying the will entirely, or by creating a later will to revoke the earlier document.

Since many people struggle to understand the finer details of creating a will, it makes good sense to learn more before taking on this task.
