How a proxy testament is valid

A proxy testament is a will written by a proxy in accordance with the will of the testator. Whether it is effective depends on whether it meets the corresponding conditions. The specific requirements are as follows:

A testament will is not a will written by the writer on his own behalf, but a proxy written according to the will of the testator, and truthfully recorded the content of the will in the testament, without any changes or amendments to the content of the will.

Witnesses are generally citizens who have been appointed by the testator and have their own consent, and cannot be witnesses in the name of the organization. The requirement of the succession law on the number of witnesses is mainly to ensure that the proxy testament is indeed an expression of the true will of the testator, and also to prevent future disputes over the validity of the will.

(2) The written testament shall be verified by other witnesses and read to the testator on the spot. After the testator determines that it is correct, it shall be signed by the proxy, other witnesses and testator, and the specific date shall be indicated . Three or more witnesses were present, and it was better to sign the will, but at least they had to guarantee their signatures. The writer, witness, and testator must sign in person, and do not allow others to sign on their behalf.

The testamentary agent must not be an heir, a beneficiary, or a person with an interest in the heir. Because heirs and beneficiaries directly participate in the inheritance, they have a direct and significant interest in inheritance. If they are appointed as testamentary of the will, they will inevitably falsify and harm the interests of other heirs, even tampering with the will, distorting the original intention of the will, Increasing or reducing the content of a will will cause damage to the interests of other heirs. Even as the heir and beneficiary of the testamentary, there is no malice and no fraudulent profits, but because of his special status, it will inevitably cause suspicion and unnecessary disputes. Therefore, heirs, beneficiaries and persons with whom he has an interest cannot be a testamentary.

The above is how to verify the validity of a testament will. Compared to self-written wills, the law requires them to be more stringent. This is also because probabilistic wills are prone to problems and will affect the execution of the will.
