Hawaii Self-Proving Affidavit Form

The Hawaii self-proving affidavit is used by a testator (the creator of a last will and testament) to provide additional confirmation concerning the validity of their will. What typically occurs after a testator dies is that their last will and testament is presented to the probate court. Court officials would then determine whether or not the will is valid by assessing the testimonies of the testator’s witnesses. However, through the incorporation of a self-proving affidavit, the probate court can determine with great certainty that the signatures on the will are authentic thus eliminating the necessity of the witnesses’ verbal testimonies.
