Any person 18 years of age or older and deemed competent may act as a witness to a will or codicil (amendment).  Typically, a friend of the decedent or an employee of the law firm who prepares the will act as witnesses to a will. It is best that an interested party not act as a witness, to avoid the risk of losing their share of the estate. Click here to learn about other requirements of a Miami will.

If you are making a will, it is best to do so with assistance from a qualified Miami estate attorney. Call the Law Offices of Albert Gurevich today at (786) 522-1411.
