I used a piece of software to do it. but you further have to have it notarized and possibly file it with the city as well.

We had the military lawyers do ours years ago, but that one is now defunct. We didn't have kids then, and the situation has changed drastically. One of the nice things about having your own software is that you can make it over and over, as things change.

Quoting CoeyG:

We set up a living trust with a pour over will. And we set it up so that any children who were born after its creation would also be included.

I did it on my own, I guess. My fil helped us. It is just in reguards to my daughter right now, as we wouldn't want her to go to a foster home while they figured everything out if something happened to us.

Just find an online outline of what should be included. As long as you write it by hand, it doesn't need to be witnessed.

You can print it out and get any two people (who are in no way involved --not guardians, not heirs, not executors) to sign it, including their names and addresses and phone numbers.

Both kinds are legal.
