What is a "Holographic Will"?

A “holographic will” is a will written by hand, without the use of a computer or other typing implement. While there are some conditions under which a holographic will may be recognized in Washington state, such a will is more likely to be challenged and thus leads to legal complications. Because the issues are complex, it is best to consult an attorney with any serious questions about a living will or holographic will.
