Baltimore Estate Planning Attorney: Blind Testator Attestation (Signing Will)

There was a recent inquiry as to the signing requirements for a will when the Testator is blind. The will should be read to the Testator. The will should have a clause that allows another individual to sign on behalf of the Testator. After the will has been read and the Testator agrees to the signing of the will, they can then verbally authorize the appointed individual to sign the will. This should all be done in front of a notary. One must be careful that the reading is done in the presence of those authorized by the Testator.
