Video Transcript

Your will does not have to be notarized in the state of Florida for it to be effective. All that is required is for two separate witnesses watch you sign the will and then subscribe their names to the will. However, for the will to be entered into probate in the state of Florida, it is required that it have a self-proving affidavit, which includes a notary. If you do not have a self-proving affidavit on your will at the time of your death for the will to be entered into probate, the court will have to get one of the witnesses to come in and say an oath that they did see you sign the will.
