Things you should know about copying a will.

There are very important things one should know about copying a will. The following information may be useful to you so you should continue reading.

Did you know that when you are copying an original will you would never remove the staples. Why? If the original will appears to be tampered with, its validity may be questioned in probate court.

How and where should the original be kept? You should keep the original of your will. If you prefer, you can give it to your lawyer for safekeeping but you should keep a copy in your files and indicate on that copy where the original can be found. You needn’t give a copy of your will to your executor unless you wish, although you should let him or her know where it is. You shouldn’t give a copy to your heirs. It is a private document, and you may wish to choose other heirs at a later date.

If you’ve assigned power of attorney to someone, that person should know where the document can be located.

In the event you do not have a will, your estate would be turned over to the state as unclaimed property. Then your heirs would need to claim the found property. A simple way to do this is by doing a money search with CashUnclaimed.com. This site will search all state and federal databases and show you what is rightfully yours and how to claim the found cash or property.
