Must a California Will Be Notarized or Are Two Witness Signatures Sufficient?

Two witnesses signatures on a Last Will and Testament suffice to make that document legal and valid in the state of California.

The Notary provision is added as additional evidence that the Testator’s signature actually appears on the Will.

Conversely however, do not rely on the notary provision in lieu of the two witnesses signatures, as California probate courts required the two witness signatures to confirm the intent of the Testator.
