Is my mother’s WILL valid which is written in mother tongue and without any witness ?

POSTED BY sfernandes ON November 25, 2014 9:27 am ONE COMMENT

My mother was uneducated and left a handwritten will with her signature in her mother tongue.  My brothers and sisters do not respect that will because it has no 2 witness signatures, they say it is a piece of shit paper.

need your opinion what to do in such matters?

    sfernandes – I think a will needs atleast 2 witness signatures, no matter it is written in any language.
