Virginia Wills: Beneficiaries as Witnesses

Can an interested person witness a Will in Virginia. Generally, the answer is yes. If the person is otherwise a valid witness, and no other exceptions exist, then an interested person (i.e., a beneficiary) may witness a Last Will & Testament in Virginia. The Virginia code provide for Wills that no person is incompetent to testify for or against a will solely by reason of any interest he possesses in the will or the estate of the testator.
