Question Details: I have made a will and two of my friends (who are not beneficiaries in the will) witness it. My bank does not notarize wills and UPS which does offer notary service is not close to where I live. It is a simple will leaving all assets to my only child.
Your Will need only be witnessed; not notarized. However, it you have a self-proving affidavit, that must be notarized. This affidavit does away with the need to locate the witnesses at such time as the Will is entered into probate. It's a good idea to have one; it will make things easier and save on expenses if the witnesses do in fact have to be tracked down.
Note: The number of witnesses to a Will varies among jurisdictions; sometimes it's two and sometimes it's three. Just be sure to comply with your state's requirements as to this.
