less-

In the state of California holographic wills, although permissible, are often found invalid and will not be enforced. A holographic will is generally handwritten and not usually witnessed, rather it will simply bear the testator’s signature. There are many reasons that a holographic will may be found invalid, for example: it may be difficult to prove the testator’s handwriting, there may be illegible handwriting, it may contain ambiguous language, or it may not be properly dated.
