What are self probating wills?
Self-probating wills are basically wills that are executed in conjunction with a self-proving affidavit. This affidavit simply says that during the time of executing the will, the will was executed with all the formalities required of the law. If you go to probate a will that does not have this self-proving affidavit, you have to contact the original witnesses in order to get the will into the probate process. If you have the self-proving affidavit, you do not have to contact the witnesses in order to get the ball rolling.
