Do you have a will?

My DH and I want to set up a will but not sure where to start. Any advice?

  • Yep. We called a local lawyer and he wrote it up for us after getting our information. Very quick and easy...for us at least. And only cost $50 for the both of us.

  • We used the Last Will & Testament CD by Adams it at Staples. We have a very simple will. Anything complicated you should really see an attorney. Call around and ask a few what their rates are.

  • Yes, we called around and spoke to different lawyers. My DH also had a benefit through work that helped us select a lawyer.

  • DH and I don't have one, keep talking about doing it, need to get busy. The first thing you should do is talk over what you have and what you want to do with it, special bequests, etc., if you have kids what arrangements need to be made. Make some sort of list, then make an appointment with an attorney. IDK what it will cost but if you outline a lot of what you want to do first, it will take less time and money to get it done.

  • yes. didnt take very long but i guess it depends on how much you have and if you have specific bequests.. we made ours when we only had 1 child.. and its made to split anything between any future children.. id like to update it and actually add in our other two kids by name..

  • Yes we made up a will as soon as we had kids with a local lawyer through my DH's group legal plan.
