A North Carolina 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 witnesses in order to make it valid. Although each witness must sign in the presence of the testator, they do not necessarily need to sign in the presence of one another.
Another requirement to make the Will valid is that it must be in written format or oral.
A North Carolina resident may bequeath their assets to any beneficiaries.
