    But does a homemade will prevent lawyers fighting? I dont know, but I wouldnt make assumptions.

    My friend spins talk about what she wants: friend B to live in her house until all of her pets die, then sell the house.

    well, that is lovely but naive. There is a mortgage on my friends house. How does she think that will be paid? I am sure our state’s intestate laws call for my friend's assets to go to her brother. Will her brother honor her lovely
    plan? I sincerely doubt it. Why would he agree to piss away the assets payong a mortgage so that dogs could live there for a decade?

    If she really wants this complex plan to be successful she needs to work with an attorney.

I believe AZ requires 2 witnesses, and many people assumed that as the notary, I would be one of the 2 witnesses. I learned to ask them to bring 2 people to witness their signature, neither of whom had any interest in any aspects of the will.
