How do you keep a Will after it has been drafted?

March 23, 2020

The safest place to deposit a Will after it has been drafted is at the Probate Registry by the lawyer that prepared the Will or by the testator personally.  After the will has been drafted, the lawyer would make sure that the Will is registered, waxed and sealed and then submitted to the probate registry. The following are required when depositing a Will:

  1. A copy of the Will;
  2. A big envelope to contain the Will;
  3. Two (2) passport photographs of the Testator;
  4. A fee for the deposit of the Will.

Please note: that a properly executed Will would be registered, waxed and sealed inside the envelope then sent to the Registry’s Strong Room for safe-keeping.
