For a formal, typed, will (called an “attested” will), there are three requirements that must be met for the will to be valid and enforceable:

  1. the testator must have intended to create a will (this is usually only an issue if there are questions about mental competency);
  2. the will must be signed (although it can be signed by proxy); and
  3. the will must be witnessed by two people.
