Frequently Asked Questions

Can I write my own will at home?

Yes, you can write your own will as long as it follows the standard requirements. Among other requirements, the will must be in writing (or typed), it must be signed by you, and two persons not related to you or named as beneficiaries in the will must witness you signing the will. You must be mentally capable of understanding what the will is and you must be signing it voluntarily, without influence from anyone. Additionally, to be a “last will and testament”, the beginning of the will must state that it revokes all other wills and codicils you might have already executed.

Does Walmart sell do-it-yourself will kits?

This was a question we found online and immediately had to Google it. Yes, Walmart sells fancy do-it-yourself will kits. You can also find them on Staples, eBay and even Amazon. The cost of the kits varies anywhere from $14 to $50. To justify the cost, the sellers include beautifully printed brochures on what to expect when a loved one passes away.

Is the do-it-yourself will kit legal?

Absolutely! The kit is legal. Preparing your own will is legal. However, to ensure that the will itself is prepared properly, be sure to check the Will Signing Requirements By State listed below. While most states allow a will to be witnessed by two persons, the state of Louisiana also requires that it be notarized.

Why do some lawyers recommend not using a do-it-yourself will kit?

Lawyers make money providing legal advice and preparing legal documents. It’s not unusual for an attorney to charge $1000+ to prepare a simple will. While most younger lawyers are aware that just about everything is available online, some believe attorneys should be used to prepare all legal documents. The availability of online legal forms is taking cash out of the pockets of many family planning and estate attorneys.
