What happens if a duplicate will is created on the presumption that the first will is lost?
My dad made a duplicate will when he couldn’t find his first will. Later, we found his first will in his closet. What should he do with the two identical wills? He wants to keep the first will. Please advise.02/22/2017 | Category: Wills and Estates | State: California | #32669
“A will executed in duplicate or any part thereof is revoked if one of the duplicates is burned, torn, canceled, obliterated, or destroyed, with the intent and for the purpose of revoking it, by either (1) the testator or (2) another person in the testator's presence and by the testator's direction.”
