Witnessing Wills by Video- Affidavits of Execution

April 9, 2020 Ian Hull Estate Planning Tags: , , , , , , 0 Comments

As of April 7, Wills can be witnessed by video conference.

This will likely require a different affidavit of execution. The typical affidavit of execution is a Court Form – Form 74.8- may not be sufficient if the Will is witnessed by video conference.

Likely, two separate affidavits of execution will be necessary.

In light of these changes, we have created a set of sample Affidavits of Execution for your consideration. Of course, we do not know what the Courts will ultimately require as evidence of execution, so for now it’s just a best guess.

Feel free to reach out with any questions,

Ian Hull
