Make sure that your last will and testament is protected!
Merely having a will is not enough. It must be known that you have a will and it must be accessible to several people so it will be recognised, not altered and read. Here are a few suggestions, from our expert David Salsbury, attorney at law on my Referral List @ ReferralList.com
TALK – Make it known that you have a will. Tell immediate family, other relatives, friends and legal representatives.
FILE – It’s called “Lodging your will”. It simply means that you file it with your county probate court.
LEGAL REPRESENTATION – Enlist the support of an attorney to keep a copy of your will, with instructions to open it upon your death.
COPIES – Make a few copies of your will and give them to trusted relatives and friends.
SAFE DEPOSIT BOX – Consider renting a safe deposit box and keep a copy of your will in it.
HOME SAFE – Consider buying a small home safe for documents, to store your will.
