A Holographic Will in West Virginia: Why Caution is Required

Although it might sound like a three-dimensional image, a holographic will is simply a will that is completely handwritten and signed by the testator, the person leaving instructions on how his or her estate should be distributed at death. West Virginia and just over half of the remaining states recognize handwritten wills. But state law sets out specific requirements for a holographic will in West Virginia to be valid, and testators should use caution in choosing to leave direction to family and loved ones in this manner.
