Notarizing Will procedures

Hi All, i am studying notarizing wills in my state. (Idaho). I see we have the special acknowledgment called “Self Proving Affidavit” where the signer and 2 witnesses appear before us together and sign in our presence. I also see it looks like there is another affidavit option for them to make it “self proving” at a “later date”. I’m guessing the “later” option we put them under oath and they swear that they originally signed the document but don’t need to resign the original. Can anyone shed any light on this?
Also, how do you all price will notarizations?

Thank you!

Quick google search:

" They can add sign a self-proving affidavit any time after that before the testator dies. If the Will does not include a self-proving affidavit and the testator wants to add one at a later date, the testator and all Witnesses must sign the self-proving affidavit in front of a notary"

Thank you Linda! That’s how I read it too.

I had never heard of it before; any law firm I worked for always included that Affidavit right within the body of the Will.

I get these mostly when I visit a client in a hospital.
