A will shall be valid as regards form, in particular the place, place, property, nationality, domicile or residence of the deceased, if it is drawn up in the form of an international will in accordance with the provisions of Articles 2 to 5 below. Whether you have your will drafted by an estate planning lawyer, use an online service, or create a self-made will, the requirements of a valid will will apply.

In the absence of a mandatory provision on the preservation of the will, the authorised person asks the testator if he wishes to make a declaration on the preservation of his will. In this case, at the express request of the testator, the certificate referred to in Article 9 shall indicate the place where he intends to keep his will. 2. Such denunciation shall take effect twelve months after the date of receipt of the notification by the depositary Government; however, denunciation shall not affect the validity of a will drawn up during the period during which the Convention was in force for the outgoing State. 156 Unless the court decides otherwise, a personal representative to whom administration is granted by means of a joint will is deemed to be the final trustee of a trust created by the will, if the giver of the will has not named another trustee in the will.

The advantage of having a will written by a lawyer comes from their knowledge of what the law requires. A holograph will, for example, which is usually not attested, is an act entirely written by the signatory, and it can be accepted as legally binding for the law to enforce its provisions, subject to the conclusions of anything that could invalidate it. A will may be considered void if, among other things, the testator was mentally incapable of disposing of his property; if the will imposes unreasonable or cruel claims as a condition of succession; or if the testator did not have clear ownership of the inherited property.

In contrast, the legal succession is transferred to the testator`s assets under the State Intestate Succession Act instead of a will.
