Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.Whats state is involved here, thanks.
Thanks for the information .
Under Maryland law
To execute a valid will, the testator, or executor of the will, must have testamentary capacity, which is the mental capacity to know:
If you feel she may have capacity here you get her to sign the will and take your chances if anybody contests it later on.
If she absolutely does not have capacity the only thing you can do here is have court supervised probate when she deceases.The laws of intestacy( no will) are applied and the court supervises liquidation of assets, payment of claims, and the balance to the heirs at law.
Laws of intestacy
Your two choices are a will hoping it will be found valid or no will and laws of intestacy decide here.
