International Wills

The international will shall be made in writing and should be signed by the testator in the presence of two witnesses and an authorized person to act in relation to international wills like members of the diplomatic and consular service of the United States designated by Foreign Service Regulations.

“An international will is valid in form, irrespective of the place where it is made, of the location of the assets and of the nationality, domicile, or residence of the testator, if it is made in the form of an international will.”  Rules regarding revocation of an international will are similar to that of the rules for revocation of wills.  The rules covering international wills vary in the different states of the United States.  The related law of each state is discussed under the following state links.
