Hi, I live in nj. If at the time that I make my will while living in nj but moves to nc before my passing. Will my will still stand even though I no longer live in nj?

Possibly. It will depend on the requirements for executing wills in NC versus the requirements in NJ. Requirements for witnessing and/or notarization vary from state to state. Individual provisions may also be affected, such as allowances for tangible personal property lists. To make sure your will is effective, I recommend updating it whenever you change your state of residence. Bryan Zlimen is licensed to practice law in the state of Minnesota, and his comments may only apply to that jurisdiction. If your question applies to a different jurisdiction you should check with an attorney in that jurisdiction. The information is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should consult an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation.
