Probate news

The Madison County Clerk issued a notice this week that as of April 16, 2007, Wills need to be on letter sized paper. If on legal size, a copy needs to be made on standard sized paper.

If my memory serves me at all today, the state rules required letter sized paper since some time in the early or mid- Nineties. Nothing mentioned about Wills. I have not used legal sized paper for anything for years and I wonder how many have used legal sized paper for their Wills in the past ten years.

Which then raises a question, if lawyers do not use legal sized paper is calling it legal sized quite correct?
