Hello. Minnesota law has certain requirements for (lawful) wills, including but not limited to the following elements: The author (the 'testator') being at least age 18 or older and in sound mind, the will itself being in writing, signed, and witnessed, properly. In the event that you are in need of a will, I certainly recommend that you telephone several attorneys and discuss your needs. It is important that you phone several lawyers in choosing, in my opinion, because it is important you feel a sense of great safety and trust with the attorney helping you. Often when a person needs a will or is thinking about such matters, the person has several legal concerns to discuss with the attorney, not just one sole item. All the best.
