It makes great sense to use a local probate lawyer, they can do will and then probate and make great witnesses as well.Usually they use their staff as witnesses and lawyer notarizes or some variation.It is worth it to you because a will contest is looming as you state.
If you cannot get the father to a lawyer --lawyers make home visits if they have too here as well.He should not try to hand draft a will given your facts a professional here is really a great idea to have it be upheld later on.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
You are correct that you at least need forms here, a lawyer to witness and notarize is a better idea locally because they can testify in any contest about his intentions and no undue influence because another party drafted and had it signed.This is money well spent for you.Lawyer can also represent you in probate.
If you can leave a positive rating when we are done it is always much appreciated.
