Probate should be avoided if possible. If it cannot be avoided, a Will that can be submitted to Probate without communicating with beneficiaries first has a higher risk of disputes than a Probate without a Will that requires all beneficiaries to agree (about the Executor, bond requirement, and non-intervention powers, and sign affidavits in advance of Probate). This is the best source of online information about probate in Washington.

  • If you believe that you absolutely must have a Will with two witnesses’ notarized signatures, then finding Counsel who is willing to sign with witnesses in person with pens and an ink notary stamp and using the King County Will Repository into which Wills of living people can be kept for One Hundred (100) Years for Twenty ($20) Dollars is the best option.
