Handwritten and Electronic Wills
On-Demand Seminar (Posted 08/15/22) | Level: Basic
Cosponsored by the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the State Bar of Michigan

Our expert gives a rundown of the elements of traditional and holographic (handwritten) wills and details the harmless error rule and what it means when confronted with electronic notes or other documents that don't meet the requirements for a will under EPIC. Listen to the discussion regarding whether Michigan needs an electronic wills statute and, if so, how to protect signers from undue influence.

Watch so you can:

  • Understand when a will meets the requirement of a writing
  • Get deficient wills, including those that haven't been signed, admitted to probate
  • Successfully incorporate a document (preexisting or not) into a will
  • Meet the higher burden of proof under the harmless error rule
