Facts and Tips
There are three types of wills: - Attested, Holographic and Nuncupative. The attested will is the most common and is prepared for the testator. - A holographic will is written by the testator himself. - A nuncupative will is the deathbed wishes of the testator, recorded by a witness present at the bedside. All wills must be witnessed.
