What Do You Do With Your Last Will And Testament After You Sign It?
After you sign your Last Will And Testament, you need to place your it in a safe place where it can be found if something fatal occurs to you. You can place your Last Will in a safe deposit box, but that is not required. Many people put their Last Will with their other legal papers. There is not a requirement that you tell anyone about your Last Will And Testament, however it is a good idea to tell whoever you have named as executor where to find your Last Will unless you have a reason not to tell them.
Some states allow you to file your Last Will And Testament at the County Courthouse for safekeeping. But, filing your Last Will while you are still alive is not required. Also, filing your Last Will while you are still alive could hinder your making a new Last Will And Testament in the future. If your first Last Will And Testament was filed at the County Courthouse, but your new or latest Last Will And Testament was not filed, which would have priority? Would anyone even know of your new or latest Last Will And Testament? Also, if you moved to another state, you won't have the original Last Will And Testament if something fatal occurs to you. If you feel safer by filing your Will, call the Clerk of Court or a lawyer licensed in your state to find out the procedures. Remember, most states do not have any procedure for filing a Last Will And Testament while you are still alive.
As an additional word of caution, you should understand that not all property is covered by your Last Will and state laws may change your wishes expressed in your Last Will And Testament. What you have in mind with regards to your Last Will may not be effective or legal.
