Arizona Will Laws
Who may make a will in Arizona: A person who is eighteen years of age or older and who is of sound mind may make a will. Statute: 14-2501.
How do I execute the Will: IN AZ a will shall be: 1. In writing. 2. Signed by the testator. and 3. Signed by at least two witnesses. Statute 14-2502.
What is a Self-proved Will: A self-proving affidavit as provided by statute may be used at the time of the executiuon of the will to substantiate the vaildity of the execution of the will. Statute 14-2504. This eliminates the need to locate the witnesses after death. A notary is required to sign the Self-proving Affidavit included with your Will
Who can be a Witness to my Will: A person who is generally competent to be a witness may act as a witness to a will. The signing of a will by an interested witness does not invalidate the will or any provision of it. Statute 14-2505. Most witnesses are 18 years of age or older and should not related to you, or be a beneficiary named in the Will.
How do I Revoke a Will in AZ: You may revoke a will in whole or in part: 1. By executing a subsequent will that revokes the previous will or part expressly or by inconsistency. or 2. By performing a revocatory act on the will if the testator performs the act with this intent or if another person performs the act in the testator's conscious presence and by the testator's direction.
"Revocatory act on the will" includes burning, tearing, canceling, obliterating or destroying the will or any part of it. A burning, tearing or canceling is a revocatory act on the will whether or not the burn, tear or cancellation touched any of the words on the will.
If a subsequent will does not expressly revoke a previous will, the execution of the subsequent will wholly revokes the previous will by inconsistency if the testator intended the subsequent will to replace rather than supplement the previous will.
The testator is presumed to have intended a subsequent will to replace rather than supplement a previous will if the subsequent will makes a complete disposition of the testator's estate.
Incorporation of other Document: A testator may incorporate a written document into the testator's will by reference if the following requirements are met: 1. The document exists at the time the testator executes the will. 2.The will's language manifests the testator's intent to incorporate this document. and 3. The will's language describes the document with enough specificity to allow its identification. Statute 14-2510.
References to Separate Lists A will may refer to a written statement or list to dispose of items of tangible personal property other than money and not otherwise specifically disposed of by the will. To be admissible under this section as evidence of the intended disposition, the writing shall either be in the testator's handwriting or be signed by the testator and shall describe the items and the devisees with reasonable certainty.
The writing may be: 1. Referred to as one to be in existence at the time of the testator's death. 2. Prepared before or after the execution of the will. 3. Altered by the testator after its preparation. or 4. A writing that has no significance apart from its effect on the dispositions made by the will.14-2513.
Are Contracts to make or not Revoke a Will Valid in Arizona: A. After December 31, 1994, a person may enter into a contract to make a will or devise or not to revoke a will or devise or to die intestate only by: 1. Provisions of a will that state the material provisions of the contract. 2. An express reference in a will to a contract and extrinsic evidence proving the terms of the contract. 3. A writing signed by the decedent evidencing the contract.
B. The execution of a joint will or mutual wills does not create a presumption of a contract not to revoke the will or wills. Statute 14-2514.
