New York law does not require the will to be dated.
Matter of Russo, 2021 NY Slip Op 32032(U) (Sur. Ct., Nassau County), states:
There is no requirement under EPTL 3-2.1 that a will must be dated to be duly executed (Matter of Dujenski, 147 AD2d 958 [4th Dept 1989]). In Dujenski, the Appellate Division reversed a decision by a Surrogate in which a will was invalidated based upon a lack of proof of the date when it was signed. The Appellate Division noted that "[t]here is no requirement that either the will or the testatrix's signature be dated."
Practical Questions: Filling Out the Probate Petition, Waivers, and Witness Affidavits
Questions: What date do I put in the blanks on the petition, waivers, and witness affidavits? Do I just insert "undated" in that blank?
