My husband and I live in Sioux Falls and want identical wills. Can we make a joint will, or do we both need separate wills?

In South Dakota, you and your husband can make a joint will. However, our law firm does not recommend doing this. One of the great advantages of making your own will is that you can change it as often as want. Your circumstances may change over the years. Tax laws may also change. You may outlive your husband by five years or fifty years. Therefore, you and your husband should each have a separate will.
