A New Hampshire self-proving affidavit form is a sworn acknowledgment attached to a last will and testament attesting to its validity. The benefit of a self-proved will is that it allows the will to go through probate without the court requiring the witnesses (individuals who observed the testator execute the document) to appear before them. Whereas many states require a separate affidavit signed by the testator and witnesses, New Hampshire law states that a sworn acknowledgment made by a notary public can be added below the signatures inscribed by the aforementioned parties in the actual will. Because there is no specific state-mandated form, the following acknowledgment must be provided below the signature of the testator and witnesses in order for a will to be considered “self-proved”:
