Hello there
Q. cant find a will have only found a will,hand written in prsons hand writting,and not signed or dated can prove its there writing .

christhelawyer : HiWelcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
christhelawyer : You need to see an experienced lawyer to apply for this will to be approved. It is possible to do so, but you will need to move quickly. Under the Wills Act documents like can be produced as the will, with appropriate evidence, but the Guardian Trust will proceed unless you start the process properly with an application to probate your will that you have.
