Create Your Will in Minutes If you die without making a valid last will and testament, you will have died intestate. You will then have no control over who your property is distributed to or even who takes care of your children following your death. Both of these matters will be determined by state laws which are often decades old. There is also the added risk that your estate could be substantially depleted due to the high levels of legal and professional fees associated with dying intestate. Making a last will and testament is the only way to ensure that you have control over these matters and that you can properly provide for the needs of your family. This self-help kit provides you with step-by-step instructions, detailed information and all the legal forms necessary to make a will and to ensure that your property passes to your loved ones after your death.

Your Health Care Directive Spares your loved ones difficult decisions by laying out your wishes for medical care and naming someone to carry those wishes: Health Care Power of Attorney Permit a loved one to make important medical decisions for you if necessary. Living Will Specify whether you want your life prolonged through artificial means in certain circumstances and set out your wishes about specific medical treatments and procedures.

Describe your preferences for burial, cremation, memorials, obituaries, and more, and select someone to oversee your final arrangements. Letter to Survivors – NEW !!

You can explain the gifts you left in your will, leave advice, divulge secrets, suggest ways of spitting shared gifts, or any other thoughts you’d like to leave behind. Documents for Your Executor Make sure your executor has all the forms and instructions necessary to do the job: checklists, letters, notices, claim forms and more. Information for Caregivers and Survivors Organize your estate so that your survivors don't have to. Use these documents to give them information about everything from bank accounts to the names of people you'd like contacted in the event of your illness or death.
