In re Probate of the Alleged Will of Ferree

SUPERIOR COURT OF NEW JERSEY APPELLATE DIVISION


April 02, 2004

IN THE MATTER OF THE PROBATE OF THE ALLEGED WILL OF RONALD D. FERREE, DECEASED.

On appeal from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Monmouth County, P-287-02, whose opinion is reported at ___ N.J. Super. ___ (Ch. Div. 2004).

Before Judges Kestin, Axelrad and Winkelstein.

Per curiam.

NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION

Submitted: March 3, 2004

The novel question presented by this appeal is whether the filling in the blanks on a pre-printed will form, signed but not witnessed as required by statute, satisfies the requirements for recognition as a holographic will. The Chancery Division judge held that it does not. He dismissed the complaint seeking admission of the purported will to probate and declared the decedent to have died intestate.

We agree and affirm substantially for the reasons expressed by Judge Clarkson S. Fisher, Jr., in his comprehensive opinion reported at ____ N.J. Super. ____ (Ch. Div. 2004).
