North Carolina Self-Proving Affidavit Form

Updated July 18, 2023

A North Carolina self-proving affidavit form is written testimony attached to a last will and testament that supports the validity of said will when it is submitted to probate court. After the testator’s death (creator of the will), probate will review the contents of the will to ensure that it is valid and was executed in accordance with State law. Normally, the witnesses involved in the execution of the will must appear before the court to confirm that the proper procedures were followed concerning the testator’s age, mental capability, and willingness. A self-proving affidavit will contain all the above-mentioned requirements and probate will most likely not have a reason to call in the witnesses. For a self-proved will to be valid, a notary public must sign and seal the form after having witnessed the signatures inscribed therein.
