What is a Holographic Will?

Holographic wills are handwritten and valid in Arizona providing that it can be proven that the will was written by the testator, via witness or handwriting expert. Holographic wills could include a detailed or general statement of the disposition of the Testator’s assets, the nomination of a personal representative, and if the Testator has minor children, the nomination of a guardian. There is no required length however; the shortest known holographic will read “All to wife.”
