Nuncupative Will

By on February 6, 2019

A nuncupative will is an oral will made right before a person’s death.

Such events can occur when there is a sudden passing and the victim had not made a legal written will to convey his or her assets.

The law in most states do not recognize such wills even when there are witnesses who witnessed the act.

They are therefore unenforceable when the law do not recognize them as legal wills.

Nuncupative wills are usually limited to people in the military.

When there is a written will but with no witnesses, it is called a holographic will.
