Q: In the state of Kansas, is it legal for me to hand write my own will with two witnesses to my signature?
As a general matter, it is not a requirement to have a will typed, and there is no requirement that the will be typed by someone other than yourself. However, there are a LOT of other variables to consider. As a probate and estate planning attorney, I've seen countless messes that not only could have been avoided by a proper estate plan, but were actually caused by the type of estate plan you're asking about. I would highly recommend you reach out to an attorney to help. If we can be of any assistance, don't hesitate to reach out.
