The name Wills.com is spot on. Other legal contract websites have so many options and here I got exactly what I needed without all the noise.
Los Angeles, CA
Updating my Will
I first made a will in 1997 and it cost me $250 dollars at the time. Now that my life has changed and I am set to retire it was time to revisit this topic and redo it. I’m glad I was able to do it online.
I appreciate that I can come back anytime if my situation changes. To be honest I am not sure whether some of my kids deserve to inherit all that I have worked for all my life.
Easy to Use
I wasn’t exactly thrilled to make my will, but my doctor recommended it and as I’m not getting any younger, I decided it was a good idea. I didn’t even realize I could do my will online until I found Wills.com which made the whole process very easy.

A will stipulates the following:
* Names a personal representative (and a back-up)
* Names a guardian for your children (and a back-up)
* Creates a plan for your pets
* Dictates the distribution of your assets and property
* Decides how debts should be paid
The idea for a one-stop-shop for all one's estate planning needs was created when wills.com's founder had to deal with the sudden loss of his father and its aftermath.
The first thing to do after you lose someone is to find a suitable funeral home that fits the deceased wishes and one that fits your budget.
the second step is to obtain proof of death which you can get from the funeral home or a medical examiner. If you need help with this call us.
Most people think of probate as involving a will. If a person dies and leaves a will, then probate is required to implement the provisions of that will.
However, a probate process also can happen if a person dies without a will and owns property that needs to be distributed under the state intestacy law (the law of inheritance). If the decedent owned an account that named a beneficiary (such as a retirement account) but the beneficiary has passed away before the owner of the account, probate law requires that account to go through the court so that the funds can be passed to the person legally entitled to them under state law.

Some states allow a will registry to be created at the courthouse, so you may try inquiring at the local probate court whether they maintain such a registry. Other locations to look at include a safety deposit box (this may require a court order if you didn't sign the signature card), under mattresses, between book pages, car glove boxes or trunks, or other private safes. If you don't know the attorney who drafted the will, you might look for old checks made out to attorneys or legal firms. You can also ask friends of the deceased who may have acted as witnesses whether or not there was mention of where the will was kept or the attorney involved. An address book may be a good resource for people to contact. If the Testator used an online service you way want to contact these.
A witness must be an independent adult who isn’t related to the testator and has no personal interest in the will. A neighbour or family friend is ideal. Someone cannot be a witness if they are:
- The spouse or civil partner of the testator
- A beneficiary of the will
- The spouse or civil partner of a beneficiary.
Executors can witness the will.
A notary public is a public officer who serves the public in non-contentious matters. A notary public is an official of integrity appointed by state government —typically by the secretary of state — to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.
Are Online Wills Legal?
The good news is that yes, online wills are indeed legal. Providing that your will meets the stipulations of your particular state, an online will is perfectly legal.
