Does my will have to be notarized?
A will does not have to be notarized in Florida to be legal. The legal requirements are that the will is signed by the decedent, as the testator for a man, a testatrix for a women, has to be signed by them at the end, and witnessed by two witnesses. The three people who sign, the decedent plus the two witnesses, have to sign in each other’s presence. They actually have to see each other sign the document. There’s no requirement for a notary.
