A Mississippi Last Will & Testament includes the following requirements:
The testator must be eighteen years old or older.
They must also be of ‘sound mind’.
The Will must be signed by the testator or by someone else in their name (provided it is done under the testator’s direction and in their presence).
The signing of the Will requires at least two disinterested witnesses in the prescence of the testator in order to make it valid.
Another requirement to make the Will valid is that it must be in written format. However, in certain circumstances, oral wills are valid.
A Mississippi resident may bequeath their assets to any beneficiaries.
