I'm moved out of the state my will was orginally made, is it still valid?
Question Details: I had my will done by an atty in CT when I was living there. Is it still legal since I moved to FL or do I need to have it redone by an atty here in FL?
If a valid will was made while you were living in another state, it is probably valid in your new state. However, many state courts require re-verification from the original will witnesses in person, to attest to the will's validity. Because of the expenses involved in finding your witnesses, it is probably best to rewrite your will after moving to another state.
A "self-proved" will avoids this problem by including an affidavit, notarized and signed by the will's witnesses attesting to the validity of the will.
Most states allow a will to be self-proved.
