Most individuals think of a will as a simple legal document that is always determined by the decedent, but that is not always the case. All states have specific laws that address the proper disposition of wills in accordance with a decedent’s estate. Regardless of the type of will, a probate court will make final determinations on legality and some state laws will require that portions of a will are unacceptable.

Anyone passing away without a will is legally intestate, but holographic, or hand-written wills, and oral wills can still be declared valid. When a will is contested this can be a problematic situation and normally the last acceptable will is the standing document. Subsequent wills usually replace all previous wills on record when they can be validated. Any individual with a significant amount of property to transfer will almost always need to prepare a last will and testament with specific instructions for disposition of personal property.

All wills are not specific to a decedent’s wishes with respect to property alone, as living wills are also legal and valid. Living wills are written with specific instructions for the health care protocol of an individual who is in jeopardy of dying or becoming comatose.
