The Holographic Will: An “Imperfect” Solution to a Problem

Michigan law allows for the creation of a holographic will, a will that is handwritten and signed by the Testator. The Testator is the person who is making out the will. A holographic will is valid only if it is the following: 

(a) In WRITING.   (b) Signed by the testator or in the testator's name by some other individual in the testator's conscious presence and by the testator's direction.   (c) Signed by at least 2 individuals, each of whom signed within a reasonable time after he or she witnessed either the signing of the will or the testator's acknowledgment of that signature or acknowledgment of the will.
