In California, anyone who is at least 18 years of age and of sound mind can create a will. “Sound mind” means having testamentary capacity, which the law describes as “mentally competent” in California.
 To be considered a mentally competent testator in California, you must be able to do all of the following:
(1) Understand the nature of the testamentary act.
(2) Understand and recollect the nature and situation of their property.
(3) Understand who their close relatives are and how they will be affected by the will.
(4) The testator must not suffer from a mental disorder.
