General Will and Testament


Remember: A Will should be written while the maker is in good health and free from any emotional distress. Be sure that your family and friends know you have one and know where it is located.

In Alabama you do not need to notarize your Will to make it legal. However, Alabama allows you to make your Will “self-proving” and you will need to go to a notary for that. A self-proving Will speeds up Probate and the court can accept the Will without contacting the witnesses who signed it.
