Alaska Last Will & Testament

Serving Residents in Anchorage & Matanuska Valley

One of the most important things to have – no matter what age or tax bracket – is a will, which is a legal document that precisely communicates your wishes, who will raise your minor children, and how your assets are distributed after your death. To ensure your will is legally sound, you may require legal assistance from an experienced estate planning lawyer.

If you are interested in drafting a will in Anchorage or Matanuska Valley, let our legal team at Denali Law Group help you prepare for the future and protect your family and possessions. Not only can we help you create your last will and testament, but we can also adjust your will accordingly and ensure your wishes are heard during the probate process.

Do not wait to contact us today at (907) 276-1942 and schedule an initial consultation.

Will Requirements

As we mentioned before, a will – also known as a last will and testament – protects your assets and loved ones. You can use a will to leave your property to certain individuals or organizations, name the guardian(s) of your minor children, name someone to manage assets you leave to your minor children, and name an executor (or personal representative) to ensure the terms of you will are implemented.

According to Alaska law, a finalized will must be:

  • Written

  • Signed by testator (person subject to the will) or in the testator’s name by someone else under the testator’s direction and in the testator’s conscious presence

  • Signed in front of two witnesses, who must also sign the will within a reasonable time frame

Although, technically, you do not need to notarize your will to make it legally valid, it is recommended. In order to make a will “self-proving” in Alaska, you must have it notarized (with your witnesses) to speed up the probate process since the court can accept the will without reaching out to the witnesses of the will.

You can change or revoke your will at any time, whether by performing a “revocatory act” (i.e. shredding, tearing, burning, or otherwise destroying parts or the entire will) or creating a new will that revokes parts or all the previous will.
