Does a Will need to be notarized in Ohio?
In Ohio, a will does not need to be notarized. However, having a will notarized can be beneficial when creating a self-proving will. A self-proving will includes a notarized affidavit signed by the testator and witnesses, affirming that the will is genuine and executed according to Ohio law. This affidavit simplifies the probate process, as it eliminates the need for witnesses to appear in court to validate the will.
