Do I need to go to a lawyer to make a will legal or are the will forms on web legal when signed, witnessed and notarized. Can one change wording on these forms to reflect wishes more clearly? Also, do all estates need to go through probate or is their a money value when this is not needed. Questions are for state of Minnesota.
