Yes, a will is only valid if it complies with the formalities of execution imposed by your state. Failure to comply invalidates a will, and an invalid will is no will at all. Remember, small mistakes have huge consequences. Consult an estate planning profession to create an effective plan and ensure your wishes are carried out.
