Where should I keep a will in New Jersey?

  • In New Jersey, it’s important to keep a copy of a will in your possession and in a safe place, but not in a safety deposit box.
  • When you use a safety deposit box, people will not be able to get access to it and they won’t be able to timely execute the terms of your will.
  • Keeping it in a safe place in your home is one option, or keeping it the place of someone else that you trust is also an option, but you should never use a safety deposit box.
