Making a Will in Your State

Select your state to learn about your state's laws.

Every state has its own rules about wills: how to make a valid will, whether or not handwritten wills are legal, and who inherits your property if you don't make a valid will. Generally, if you make a will that's valid in the state where you are living, and then move, your old will is still valid--but it's probably a good idea to take another look at it, and make a new will that reflects both your current life circumstances and the laws of your new state.
