In New Jersey, it’s important to keep a copy of a will on your possession and to keep it in a safe place but not in a safety deposit box. When you use a safety deposit box, people will not be able to get access to it and they won’t be able to timely execute the terms of your will. Keeping it in a safe place in your home is one option, or keeping it the place of someone else that you trust is also an option, but you should never use a safety deposit box.
