Last Will and Testament in State of Hawaii
My father is 77 years old and has very few assets, about 30K, no property or car. He'd like to write a letter (last will and testament) regarding what should be done with his money if he should pass, sign the document and have it notarized. Is this legally binding as a will? Thank you for your time and consideration.

It depends on the law of his residency at the time of death (HI in this case). Under Alabama law, such a writing would not be a valid Will (as two witnesses are required).
