AS 13.12.913. International Will; Requirements.
- (a) The international will must be written. The will does not need to be written by the testator. The will may be written
in any language, or by hand or other means.
- (b) The testator shall declare in the presence of two witnesses and of a person authorized to act in connection with
international wills that the document is the testator's will and that the testator knows the contents of the will. The
testator does not need to inform the witnesses, or the authorized person, of the contents of the will.
- (c) In the presence of the witnesses, and of the authorized person, the testator shall sign the international will, or, if
the testator has previously signed it, shall acknowledge the testator's signature.
- (d) When the testator is unable to sign, the absence of the testator's signature does not affect the validity of the
international will if the testator indicates the reason for the testator's inability to sign and the authorized person
makes note of the reason on the will. In these cases, it is permissible for any other person present, including the
authorized person or one of the witnesses, at the direction of the testator, to sign the testator's name for the
testator, if the authorized person makes note of this also on the will, but it is not required that a person sign the
testator's name for the testator.
- (e) The witnesses and the authorized person shall there and then attest the international will by signing in the presence
of the testator.
