10/1/19 Holographic will

 

holographic will is one that is entirely written, dated and signed in the handwriting of the testator, rather than typewritten or printed. Holographic wills are accepted as valid in many states provided they meet statutory requirements; for example, in some cases, these wills are not required to be signed by witnesses in order to be valid to pass property.

Nuncupative will

nuncupative will, also known as an oral will or a verbal will, is a set of instructions for the distribution of personal property given by a person who is too sick to execute a written will. Nuncupative wills are valid only in some jurisdictions. A nuncupative will is only to be used in situations of extreme emergency and does not supersede a written will.
