I just need to know if it is legally binding if i do a codicil on my own & have it notarized instead of going back to the atty that did my will.
Kansas law does not require you to hire an attorney in order to execute a valid codicil to your will. However, doing so is always the safest approach to ensure your will or codicil is properly executed. The statutory requirements for executing a will or codicil under K.S.A. 59-606. This statute also sets forth the requirements for making the will or codicil “self-proved” by affidavit, which eliminates the need for calling any witnesses when the will is presented to the probate court.
