Digital signatures are very common today. Billions of dollars move from one party to another with nothing more than an electronic signature. Unfortunately, in almost every jurisdiction, testamentary documents (documents that become legally binding at death) require a physical, or wet signature. And in the few forward thinking states where digital signature have been approved, they are not widely accepted yet. As a result, until digital signatures for estate planning documents become the norm, we will continue to require your documents be physically signed.
