What makes a Will valid?

Generally speaking, a valid Will is one that is witnessed (typically by two or more persons), and in some cases, notarization is required in addition to the witnesses.

Many states have self-proving Wills - This type of Will is generally accepted without question if each witness has signed the Affidavit (a notarized statement from the witnesses) included in the Will.
