May I Notarize Copies Of A Will?

New Hotline Resized 3A customer has requested to have 3 copies of her will notarized. Am I able to notarize these? M.C., Virginia

Yes, you can notarize 3 copies of the same document as long as each document has an original signature.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors

I am a notary in Nevada. A neighbor asked me to notarize a holographic will. The Secretary of State's office told me you don't notarize a holographic will in Nevada. Furthermore they advised against any notary, not associated with a law office, to notarize wills since if there was a dispute, the heirs could and would go after the notary.
