A notarial will must be in writing and signed before a notary and two competent witnesses. The person making the will, also known as the testator, has to declare that the will is his or her last testament and then sign his or her name at the end of the testament and on every page of the will. Louisiana law also requires a particular phrase to be included at the end of the will indicating the witnesses and notary watched the testator sign his name to the will. This is the type of will OPL will create for you.
