Maine Self-Proving Affidavit Form

Updated July 18, 2023

A Maine self-proving affidavit form is a document attached to a last will and testament that functions as proof that the will was signed and witnessed by the testator (creator) and the involved witnesses. A self-proving affidavit performs virtually all the functions of an attestation clause but allows the will to be permitted to probate without requiring witnesses to appear in court. The individuals who have witnessed the testator sign the will are signing the affidavit under penalty of perjury, allowing the court to admit the will without debate. Each signature will be witnessed by a notary public, who then carries out the duty of completing the certificate of validation at the bottom of the affidavit.

  • Signing Requirements – Two (2) witnesses and a notary public.
