How do you prove a will?

You prove a will by having it notarized properly under Florida law. Florida law provides that to prove a will that the notary does an affidavit which the decedent and the two witnesses all swear before the notary that they have previously signed the will in the presence of the two witnesses, and the two witnesses sign in the presence of the testator or testatrix, and then the notary puts a separate affidavit on the will. The advantage of self-proving is that when the will goes to court or goes to probate after the decedent’s death is that the witnesses don’t have to sign a consent or appear before the court to say that they were present during the signing of the will.
