Don’t have a will yet?
These are the times when you need to write (or revise) your will:
- When you get married.
- If you get divorced.
- If you become separated from your spouse.
- When you have children under the age of 18.
How To Write A Will
As I see it, you pretty much have 3 options when it comes to writing a will:
#1 – Pay an attorney: You’ll pay approximately $500 for a standard Last Will and Testament.
#2 – Write it yourself: You can find helpful forms using USLegalForms.com for about $40. (Recommended by financial guru, Dave Ramsey.)
#3 – Use an online service: Let the folks at LegalZoom.com help you write it for about $50. (Recommended by ABC News, PC Magazine, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal; it’s secure and guaranteed!)
